UFC 254 news: Khabib Nurmagomedov weigh-in worries fans ahead of Justin Gaethje fight


Fight night is almost upon us as Khabib Nurmagomedov defends his lightweight world title against Justin Gaethje.

Although it isn't the fight we were expecting this year, it's certainly a fight that has us excited.

Everyone would have tuned in to Gaethje vs Tony Ferguson expecting the latter to get the job done to once again set up an encounter with Khabib, but it was the former who impressed that night and eventually stopped his opponent.

Fast forward a few months and here we are... UFC 254 as Khabib and Gaethje do battle.

Before the fight, though, we have the usual pre-bout rituals and today it was the turn of the weigh-ins.

Now, it's always hard to read too much into weigh-ins and reactions from said events, but it seems like A LOT of fight fans have been left worrying after seeing Khabib look rather stressed and uncomfortable during his.

Watch a video of him getting on the scales below... clearly struggling as well and worrying about making weight.

Unsurprisingly after seeing the clip, many flooded the replies and expressed their concern for the Russian, with some saying he's clearly struggled to make weight this time around, while others state he looks like he's still struggling to deal with the loss of his father, who sadly passed away earlier in the year due to complications from having COVID-19.

Take a look at some of the fans' responses down below and see what you think.


That is just a handful of the replies as well; it seems that a lot of people are genuinely concerned about Khabib ahead of the fight this weekend.

Not only does the Russian go into the fight as champion, he also goes in with an undefeated record to protect... but after seeing this weigh-in, there's a serious chance he could lose both come fight night.
