In the co-main event, Karl Roberson (9-2) missed weight — again — by four and a half pounds this time in a rescheduled fight with Marvin Vettori (14-4-1). Roberson was over the limit by one and a half pounds on May 13th, in Jacksonville, Florida. He was removed from the card due to rhabdomyolysis. Roberson will fork over thirty per cent of his purse to Vettori Saturday night.

In the bantamweight division, Zarrukh Adashev (3-1) missed weight by two and a half pounds, coming in at 138.5-pounds. His opponent, Tyson Nam (18-11-1), will receive twenty per cent of Adashev’s purse. A fight scheduled for the preliminary card.

Darrick Minner’s (24-11) featherweight fight with Jordan Griffin (18-7) is canceled due to Minner falling ill during his weight cut. The card will go on with ten bouts. Catch all the action on ESPN+.
