Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just one day away from the upcoming UFC 281 pay-per-view (PPV) event on ESPN+, scheduled for this Sat. night (Nov. 12, 2022) at Madison Square Garden in New York City. UFC 281 will be headlined by the middleweight title fight pitting reigning 185-pound kingpin Israel Adesanya against longtime kickboxing rival Alex Pereira, a five-round showdown that follows the women’s strawweight contest between current 115-pound champion Carla Esparza and former division titleholder Zhang Weili.
But before they can fight, they must first weigh in.
The UFC 281 early (and official) weigh ins will stream LIVE from the promotion’s host hotel in the embedded video above starting promptly at 9 a.m. ET. The festivities are expected to last roughly two hours but could end much earlier depending on how quickly all 28 fighters get to the scale. Remember, the promotion will also stage the UFC 281 ceremonial weigh ins — complete with fighter staredowns — live from Radio City Music Hall at 4 p.m. ET.
