The featherweight and lightweight quarterfinals are official for Thursday’s Professional Fighters League playoffs, but weigh-ins didn’t go off without a hitch.
Gadzhi Rabadanov failed to make weight ahead of his featherweight quarterfinal pairing with Lance Palmer (145.8), and as a result, he was replaced by alternate Alexandre Almeida (145). All of the other 155- and 145-pound competitors hit their contracted marks without issue on Wednesday.
