Live: UFC Vegas 72 early weigh ins video results | Song vs. Simon

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just over 24 hours away from its upcoming UFC Vegas 72 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, headlined by a 135-pound showdown between Top 10 bantamweight contenders Yadong Song and Ricky Simon. The action gets underway this Sat. night (April 29, 2023) on ESPN+ from inside the promotion’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, and also features a middleweight co-headliner between Brazilian bruiser Caio Borralho and Polish power puncher Michal Oleksiejczuk.

Before the ESPN+ live stream gets underway this weekend in “Sin City,” which also includes the heavyweight showdown between Waldo Cortes-Acosta and Marcos Rogerio de Lima, all 22 fighters must hit the scale to prove themselves worthy. Note: Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) affords a one-pound allowance in non-title fights.

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