The UFC 257 fight card took a big hit this morning after two fighters no-showed the official weigh ins. In addition, another missed weight ahead of tomorrow night’s (Jan. 23) pay-per-view (PPV) event inside Etihad Arena on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi.

Ottman Azaitar did not weigh in for his 155-pound bout against Matt Frevola. Since Nasrat Haqparast also failed to make it to the scale for his lightweight contest opposite Arman Tsarukyan — who was fined 20% after missing weight by one pound — the promotion is going to put Frevola against Tsarukyan.
Two fighters scratched, another heavy, one less fight for tomorrow night.
Fortunately the main event between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, as well as the co-headliner featuring Michael Chandler vs. Dan Hooker, are both intact. Watch them take the stage for the UFC 257 ceremonial weigh ins by clicking here.
