Alistair Overeem is set for yet another headlining bout.

The legendary heavyweight successfully stepped to the scale at Friday’s official weigh-ins for UFC Vegas 18, which takes place Saturday at UFC APEX in Las Vegas. Overeem weighed in at 255.5 pounds, while opponent Alexander Volkov was just a shade under the limit at 264 pounds.

Co-main event bantamweights Cory Sandhagen and Frankie Edgar also made weight. Sandhagen came in at 135.5 pounds, while Edgar also hit 135.5. This is the second straight time Edgar has made the 135-pound limit after previously competing at 145 and 155 pounds.

The official weigh-ins went off without a hitch as all 26 scheduled fighters successfully made weight, including former RIZIN champion Manel Kape, who makes his UFC debut Saturday. This was actually Kape’s second UFC weigh-in appearance as he also made weight as an alternate for the Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Brandon Moreno flyweight title bout at UFC 256 in December.

UFC Vegas 18 kicks off with preliminary bouts beginning at 5 p.m. ET, followed by the main card at 8 p.m. The event airs live on the ESPN+ streaming service.
