Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will hold its official weigh-in event for the UFC on ESPN 2 mixed martial arts (MMA) fight card this morning (Fri., March 29, 2019) at 9 a.m. ET from inside the fighter hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. That gives all 26 fighters a two-hour window to make their respective marks and in addition to the embedded video above, we’ll be sure to bring you the live, real-time text results below.
Sorry, no ceremonial weigh-ins later today, so what you see is what you get.
UFC on ESPN 2 will feature lightweight strikers Edson Barboza and Justin Gaethje, who collide for a spot in the crowded 155-pound title chase. In addition, longtime middleweight veteran, David Branch, gets back to work against Swedish “Joker,” Jack Hermansson. Elsewhere on the card, strawweight standouts Michelle Waterson and Karolina Kowalkiewicz go to war for a potential 115-pound title shot later this year.
