The formalities are almost complete as we edge toward fight night at UFC 286 in London. But, before the fighters step into the Octagon, they have to step on the scale and flex for the fans, before facing off with their opposite numbers at the ceremonial weigh-ins.
A rowdy London crowd is expected to be in attendance at The O2 Arena for the final pre-fight event of the week. They were raucous at Thursday’s press conference, as they drowned out former champion Kamaru Usman with chants of “Head shot, dead!” – a reference to Leon Edwards’ post-fight speech after his knockout win over “The Nigerian Nightmare” at UFC 278.
The pair are now set to go toe to toe again in a trilogy fight as they compete in a welterweight title rematch in the main event.
There’s also a dynamite lightweight clash on deck, as 155-pound crowd-pleasers Justin Gaethje and Rafael Fiziev get set to throw down in a co-main event bout that promises fireworks.
The fight card also features a host of UK talent, including debutants Christian Leroy Duncan, Sam Patterson, and Chris Duncan.
Watch the fighters take to the stage and face off for the final time via the official UFC live stream above, which is scheduled to get underway at 6pm UK time. For full weigh-in results, check our official list below.
