Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be LIVE at 12 a.m. (midnight) ET for the UFC Fight Island 8 weigh-in event, where 28 hungry fighters will climb on the scale in advance of this Wednesday’s (Jan. 20, 2021) mixed martial arts (MMA) event on ESPN+ and ESPN from inside Etihad Arena on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.
After COVID-19 once again postponed the main event showdown between Leon Edwards and Khamzat Chimaev, UFC called on longtime veterans Michael Chiesa and Neil Magny to step up and take over headlining duties for a special midweek ESPN card on “Fight Island.”
