Whilst UFC 228 takes place on Saturday night in Dallas, Texas, there will be almost as much focus on Friday’s weigh-in.

There is huge pressure on Darren Till to make the 170lb limit for his welterweight title fight with Tyron Woodley after Till missed his target in his last bout with Stephen Thompson.

The Brit has openly admitted he struggles to make 170lb and he is set for a move up to middleweight in the future, but can he make it for the biggest fight of his career?

There is also pressure on women’s flyweight title challenger Valentina Shevchenko, who only returned to the division from bantamweight in her last contest.

Shevchenko is hot favourite to win the belt from champion Nico Montano, but she must make weight first.
