Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will hold its early and official weigh ins today at 10 a.m. ET for the UFC Fight Night 159: “Rodriguez vs. Stephens” mixed martial arts (MMA) event on ESPN+ (sign up here), which pops off this Sat. night (Sept. 21, 2019) inside Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City, Mexico.
Since this card is wack, the promotion won’t be returning later this evening for its ceremonial festivities, so what you see is what you get, in terms of fighters stripping down to their undies and getting on the scale. Staredowns will be held once the early weigh ins are completed, so look for that video at some point after lunch.
