Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to pay-per-view (PPV) tomorrow night (Sat., March 3, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, featuring Cris Cyborg in her second women’s featherweight title defense against Octagon newcomer Yana Kunitskaya.
Former lightweight kingpin Frankie Edgar takes over the co-main event slot in hopes of turning away 145-pound up-and-comer Brian Ortega, who comes into the bout on short notice.
All four combatants were on hand for today’s weigh in festivities and as you would expect, came together at the end to face off for the media flashbulbs, which we’ve conveniently embedded above and below.
