The UFC issued the following statement on missed weigh-ins related to tomorrow night’s UFC 205:

Saturday night's UFC 205 card will now proceed with 11 bouts and a five-fight main card after the Kelvin Gastelum vs. Donald Cerrone match was removed due to Gastelum missing weight on Friday morning for the welterweight matchup.

Cerrone will be paid his show money for the bout.

Thiago Alves also missed weight for his lightweight debut against Jim Miller, as he clocked in at 162.6 pounds. Alves will be fined 20 percent of his purse, but the bout will proceed as scheduled due to Miller coming in within five pounds of his opponent. As agreed to by all involved parties, Alves can't weigh in more than 173 pounds on fight day.
