UFC Louisville weigh-in results: Eduarda Moura misses weight for second straight fight

Eduarda Moura might have to consider changing divisions.

The Brazilian was the lone fighter to miss weight at Friday’s official weigh-ins for UFC Louisville, which takes place Saturday at KFC Yum! Center. Though Moura only missed by half a pound, coming in at 116.5, she has now missed weight in both of her UFC appearances since being signed off of the Contender Series in August 2023.

See Moura’s weigh-in gaffe below.

Moura previously missed weight for her UFC debut against Montserrat Conejo. For that fight, Moura weighed in at 119.5 pounds, 3.5 pounds over the strawweight limit. She has been scheduled to compete at the 115-pound limit for her past four fights, but has booked bouts in higher weight classes prior to joining the UFC.

The main event weigh-ins went off without a hitch as middleweight contenders Jared Cannonier and Nassourdine Imavov—No. 5 and No. 11, respectively, in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings—both successfully made weight at 185 pounds.

Several other fighters had difficulty at the scale, including Montana De La Rosa, Denise Gomes, Brad Katona, and Punahele Soriano. All came in heavy on their first attempts, but after stripping down and weighing in again with coverage from a box, they hit the mark to make their bouts official.
