Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just over 24 hours away from its upcoming UFC Vegas 59 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, headlined by a 205-pound showdown between former light heavyweight title challenger Thiago Santos and surging striking sensation Jamahal Hill this Sat. night (Aug. 6, 2022) on ESPN and ESPN+ from inside the promotion’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, which also plays host to the flyweight and heavyweight finals of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 30.
Before the ESPN and ESPN+ live streams get underway this weekend in “Sin City,” which also feature the welterweight collision between fan favorite 170-pound bruisers Vicente Luque and Geoff Neal, all 24 fighters must hit the scale to prove themselves worthy. Note: Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) affords a one-pound allowance in all non-title fights.

We’ll also have real-time text updates for the “Santos vs. Hill” weigh ins listed below, updated as they happen.
