UFC Vegas 74 weigh-in results: Flyweight contenders Kai Kara-France, Amir Albazi first to scale


Kai Kara-France and Amir Albazi were quick to remind everyone who the stars of UFC Vegas 74 are.

The flyweight contenders were the first two fighters to the scale at Friday’s official UFC Vegas 74 weigh-ins, with Albazi showing up at 126 pounds and Kara-France immediately following at 125.5 pounds. Saturday’s main event pits the No. 5 (Kara-France) and No. 13 (Albazi) flyweights in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings against one another.

Kara-France looks to rebound from a second loss to Brandon Moreno in a vacant interim title bout this past July. Albazi has yet to taste defeat inside the Octagon, having gone 4-0 since debuting with the promotion in July 2020.

Friday’s weigh-ins also saw two of the UFC’s most veteran fighters successfully make weight, with Jim Miller coming in at 155.6 pounds for his 42nd appearance for the promotion, and Andrei Arlovski coming in at 245 pounds for a milestone 40th UFC fight.

All 26 fighters competing on Saturday’s card successfully made weight.
