Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just one day away from the upcoming UFC 293 pay-per-view (PPV) mixed martial arts (MMA) event on ESPN+, scheduled for this Sat. night (Sept. 9, 2023) at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia. UFC 293 will be headlined by the middleweight title fight pitting reigning 185-pound kingpin Israel Adesanya against No. 5-ranked contender Sean Strickland, a five-round showdown that follows the heavyweight collision between local hero Tai Tuivasa and Russian import Alexander Volkov.
But before they can fight, they must first weigh in.
The UFC 293 early (and official) weigh ins will stream LIVE from the promotion’s host hotel in the embedded video above starting promptly at 2 a.m. ET. The festivities are expected to last roughly two hours but could end much earlier depending on how quickly all 24 fighters get to the scale. Remember, the promotion will also stage the UFC 293 ceremonial weigh ins — complete with fighter staredowns — live from Qudos Bank Arena at 6 a.m. ET HERE.
