The official weight determination will not be compromised and Kelvin Gastellum will not be disqualified from competing in UFC 244, as the possible contact mentioned in the video cannot say that it has materially affected Mr Gastellum's weight to the extent that it would exceed the weight limit allowed for a race in the match.The Commission will continue to review the matter and take disciplinary action if there is clear evidence of contact with another person during the weighing process p They are obvious because any such contact is a violation of Commission policy.
