John Lineker and Kelvin Gastelum will still fight today at UFC 183, but both fighters will receive considerably less pay, after missing weight on Friday.

Gastelum came in at 180 for his welterweight fight with Tyron Woodley, while Lineker weighed 130 for his flyweight bout with Ian McCall.

As a result both men will be fined 30% of their purse.

Gastelum has missed weight on two occasions now, while Lineker has missed weight a whopping, four times.

UFC 183 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
