The main event of UFC Liverpool is a go.

A potential disaster for the UFC was averted as officials announced that Darren Till was able to make 187.3 pounds at a scheduled weigh-in around 1 p.m. local time in Liverpool, England, making him eligible to face Stephen Thompson in the main event of Sunday’s show at the Echo Arena. Till was required to hit the scales again after failing to make the welterweight limit (171 pounds for a non-title bout) at Saturday’s official weigh-ins, where he came in heavy at 174.5 pounds.

At least he made this weight, and weighed in, in time... I'd like to see his feet.

I don't get the overall point of this. If he desperately had to make a certain weight after failing the first time, he might be inclined to cut again. This really doesn't promote fighter safety the correct way imo

.

He should have made weight. He’s lucky he was even allowed to weigh in to begin with since he missed the deadline to weigh in. Had this fight taken place anywhere else, he would not have been allowed to weigh in after the deadline and this fight wouldn’t be happening.
