Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held its ceremonial weigh ins earlier today for the UFC 257 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Jan. 23, which features the lightweight rematch between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier inside Etihad Arena on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
McGregor and Poirier came face-to-face for the second-to-last time at today’s scale-tipping festivities (see above), as did lightweight co-headliners Michael Chandler and Dan Hooker (see below). One of these four combatants could very well compete for the 155-pound strap later this year.
