Charles Oliveira vs. Islam Makhachev INTENSE staredown video from UFC 280 weigh ins

The UFC 280 ceremonial weigh ins went down earlier today from Abu Dhabi, home of tomorrow’s “Oliveira vs. Makhachev” pay-per-view (PPV) card at Etihad Arena on “Fight Island.” Event headliners Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev both made weight for their five-round lightweight title fight, clocking in at 154.5 pounds each. Similarly, co-headliners Aljamain Sterling and TJ Dillashaw each hit the scale at 135 pounds for their bantamweight championship collision, while Petr Yan registered 136 against 135.5 for bantamweight rival Sean O’Malley. Regrettably, flyweight veteran Katlyn Chookagian missed weight (127.5) and the promotion was forced to cancel the featherweight contest between Lucas Almeida and Zubaira Tukhugov due to “weight management issues.”
