With the UFC 271 early (and official) weigh ins already in the bag (get full video and text results here), the promotion will trot all 28 fighters back on stage for the UFC 271 ceremonial weigh ins, complete with staredowns, ahead of the “Adesanya vs. Whittaker 2” pay-per-view (PPV) event this Sat. night (Feb. 12, 2022) inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, also featuring the Derrick Lewis vs. Tai Tuivasa heavyweight co-main event.
The ceremonial weigh ins begin LIVE at 5 p.m. ET in the embedded video above.
In addition to the Israel Adesanya vs. Robert Whittaker middleweight main event, an important 185-pound showdown between Derek Brunson and Jared Cannonier takes place in the “Lone Star State.” The winner of Adesanya vs. Whiitaker is expected to fight the winner of Brunson vs. Cannonier later this year, unless “The Reaper” reclaims his crown at UFC 271 and sets up a middleweight championship trilogy.
