The top end of the UFC 255 fight card wasted no time making weight on Friday, but high profile fighter Mike “Platinum” Perry struggled with a reported 20-pound weight cut, blowing past the welterweight mark. UFC 255 is headlined by two flyweight championship bouts. Men's 125-pound titleholder Deiveson Figueiredo tipped the scale at 125 pounds for the first defense of the belt he won by scoring back-to-back victories over Joseph Benavidez. His opponent, Alex Perez, was the first fight to weigh-in. He weighed 124.5 pounds. Figueiredo vs. Perez headlines the card, while women's flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko makes the next defense of her title against Jennifer Maia in the UFC 255 co-main event. Shevchenko and Maia, like their male counterparts, weighed in early, each of them weighing 124.5 pounds.
