Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just over 24 hours away from its upcoming UFC Vegas 41 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, headlined by a middleweight ... er ... catchweight ... um never mind ... how about “light heavyweight showdown” between Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori this Sat. afternoon (Oct. 23, 2021) on ESPN+ from inside the promotion’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Before the televised action gets underway this weekend in “Sin City,” which also features the 265-pound co-main event between hot “Contender Series”-signee Grant Dawson and Rick Glenn, all 28(!) fighters must hit the scale, although given Paulo Costa’s recent decision to just not make contracted weight, it all feels a little bit more arbitrary than usual.
The UFC Vegas 41 weigh ins will stream LIVE in the embedded video player above beginning promptly at 11 a.m. ET (8 a.m. PT). We’ll also have real-time text updates for the “Vettori vs. Costa” weigh ins listed below, updated as they happen.
