Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up for its UFC 224: “Nunes vs. Pennington” mixed martial arts (MMA) event on pay-per-view (PPV), locked and loaded for this Saturday night (May 12, 2018) inside Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Prior to this weekend’s big shebang, which also features “Prelims” bouts on UFC Fight Pass and the FX network, the promotion will send all 26 fighters to the scale for the official UFC 224 weigh ins.
Remember, the combatants will first weigh in earlier in the day around 8 a.m. ET (host hotel) in the video above, then return later this evening at 6 p.m. ET (Jeunesse Arena) for the live ceremonial video stream and corresponding staredowns. With that in mind, keep it locked in right here for the early weigh-in text results, LIVE and as they happen.
