Russia’s UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has gained 8 kilograms in weight since Friday’s weigh in ahead of his UFC 242 unification fight against interim champion Dustin Poirier at YAS Island in Abu Dhabi.
Axar.az reports citing TASS that Khabib needed two trips to the scales before finally making weight, being forced to strip naked to weigh in bang on the 155lbs limit.
Currently, the fighter’s weight after a period of rehydration and refuelling stands around 172lbs, after gaining the equivalent of over 17 and a half pounds.
That weight would qualify Khabib to fight above even the UFC welterweight limit, although the Makhachkala man usually walks around at anything between 180lbs and 190lbs when not in training.
