Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up for its UFC 225: “Whittaker vs. Romero” mixed martial arts (MMA) event on pay-per-view (PPV), locked and loaded for this Saturday night (June 9, 2018) inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Prior to this weekend’s big shebang, which also features “Prelims” bouts on UFC Fight Pass and FOX Sports 1, the promotion will send all 26 fighters to the scale for the official UFC 225 weigh ins.
Remember, the combatants will first weigh in earlier in the day around 10 a.m. ET (host hotel) in the video above, then return later this evening at 7 p.m. ET (United Center) 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.
