Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back on the airwaves this Sat. night (May 16, 2020) with the UFC on ESPN 8 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, taking place inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
Headlining the ESPN fight card, which will also streams on ESPN+ (sign up here), is longtime heavyweight veteran Alistair Overeem, who looks to spoil the return of surging 265-pound knockout sensation Walt Harris.
In the UFC on ESPN 8 strawweight co-main event, former 115-pound title contender Claudia Gadelha locks horns with grizzled division bruiser Angela Hill. But before any of the fighters can throw hands, they must first make weight on Friday morning at 9 a.m. ET.
That’s where we come in.
