KHABIB Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje looked in phenomenal shape as they both weighed in at 11st 1lb.
The UFC icons meet in Saturday night’s mega-clash on Fight Island and their shredded physiques were on show for all to see on the scales.

Footage from the weigh in was released this morning and Russian world champion Khabib looked thoroughly relieved to have made the weight.
The 32-year-old stripped naked before climbing on the scales and he looked nervous until his weight was confirmed.
He stared downward anxiously before the announcer read out the 155lb reading at which point Khabib’s body language relaxed and he ran his hands over his face.
Gaethje looked much more confident as he flexed his chiselled tattooed physique.
American fighter Gaethje wore a mask while on stage whereas Khabib decided against it.
After video clips were released, some fight fans on Twitter questioned the legitimacy of the process.
Benjamin wrote: “Something fishy about this Khabib weigh in.
“Never seen it happen so quickly from stepping on the scales. That along side his reaction, I smell a rat.”

Pawan added: “Who was that person at the weighing scale?
“The guy did not even allow the scale to balance while Khabib was on.
“Also look at him while Justin and Michael Chandler were there.”
And Craig simply added: “Does look dodgy, hopefully Justin punishes him for it though.”
Yesterday Gaethje revealed he will force his mum to retire after this fight as he paid an emotional tribute to his parents.
The 31-year-old was also seen throwing away his interim lightweight belt as ‘it means nothing’.
And on Wednesday, leaked footage revealed his game plan after it emerged in an official UFC blog.
