It is the eve of UFC Vegas 33, and there is one final hurdle for the talent on the card to overcome before their bouts on July 31 are official: The UFC Vegas 33 weigh-ins.

Weigh-ins for the event started today at 12 noon ET (9 am PT) from the same venue as the event, the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. And there were a few rough outings for several talents. First, Nicco Montano's planned bout against Yu Wanan has been canceled after the former Ultimate Fighter winner missed the bantamweight grace limit by seven pounds. Next, was Ronnie Lawrence who did not even make it to the scales. His scheduled bout with Trevin Jones is also off the card.

Last was Philip Rowe, who missed the welterweight grace by two and a half pounds. He will be fined 20% of his purse and his bout with Orion Cosce will go on as planned.

The 13-fight event is headlined by a clash of top-15 middleweights when eighth-ranked Uriah Hall (17-9) plays the role of betting underdog against red hot eleventh-ranked Sean Strickland (23-3). The card starts at 6 pm ET with preliminary action, then the main card follows at 9 pm ET. The event will air on both ESPN and streaming service ESPN+.
