UFC 244 weigh-in results: Jennifer Maia misses weight

UFC 244, one of the year’s most anticipated cards, takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The sole women’s bout on the card features a flyweight contest between two top five contenders. The winner of the fight could arguably be next in line for a crack at Shevchenko’s crown, however, that may only be the case for one fighter now.

For the second fight in a row, the former Invicta FC flyweight champion, Maia, missed weight. In her last fight, a unanimous decision win over Roxanne Modafferi, Maia came in at 129 pounds, three pounds over the flyweight limit.
