Gastelum weighed 180 pounds for his 170-pound co-main event bout with Tyron Woodley. That’s nine pounds above the 171 allowed for a welterweight non-title fight.

Following negotiations between Woodley, Gastelum, UFC president Dana White, and matchmaker Joe Silva, Woodley agreed to accept the fight with a man nearly a full weight class heavier than him. As part of the outcome, Gastelum will be fined 30-percent of his purse, which will go to Woodley, according to UFC representative Dave Sholler.
Lineker put his fight on shaky ground as well. Lineker, who, like Gastelum, has struggled to make weight in the past, weighed in at 130 pounds for his flyweight fight with Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall. That is four pounds over the 126-pound limit for their 125-pound non-title bout.
Also like Gastelum, Lineker will be fined 30-percent of his fight purse, all of which will go to McCall.
