Former UFC light heavyweight champion Blachowicz (28-9 MMA, 11-6 UFC) and surging contender Rakic (14-2 MMA, 6-1 UFC) stepped on the scale Friday morning and hit the divisional limit ahead of their five-round, main event clash at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The card airs on ESPN2 and streams on ESPN+.

Rakic was the first fighter to weigh-in during the two-hour window, registering at championship weight of 205 pounds even. Blachowicz came in moments later as the second fighter on the scale, and used the non-title allowance at 205.5 pounds.

Check out the video above for the Blachowicz vs. Rakic weigh-in highlights.
