Bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo and former champ Dominick Cruz came in at 135 pounds for their co-main event title bout.
The only snag was featherweight Jeremy Stephens, who came in at 150.5 pounds, 4.5 pounds over the 146 pound limit. The Florida State Boxing Commission will likely fine Stephens a percentage of his purse. His opponent Calvin Kattar weighed in at 146 pounds.
