Following Friday’s weigh-in, the card is set to roll forward with just one cancelation. Only one athlete failed to make weight, with Phil Rowe coming in heavy at 173 ½ pounds, above the welterweight threshold. Rowe will face Niko Price in the preliminary card finale but forfeits 30% of his purse. The women’s flyweight bout between Amanda Ribas and Tracy Cortez was canceled Friday due to a medical issue for Ribas.
