katlyn chookagian ufc 280 official weigh ins

ABU DHABI – MMA Junkie was on scene and reporting live from Friday’s official UFC 280 fighter weigh-ins.

The early weigh-ins took place at the UFC host hotel in Abu Dhabi and precede the ceremonial weigh-ins for the fans, which take place at 8 a.m. ET at Etihad Arnea in Abu Dhabi. The same venue hosts Saturday’s event, which has a main card on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPNews and ESPN+.

Among those weighing in are former lightweight champion Charles Oliveira (33-8 MMA, 21-8 UFC) and Islam Makhachev (22-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC), who meet for the vacant 155-pound title in the main event, and bantamweight champ Aljamain Sterling (21-3 MMA, 13-3 UFC) and ex-titleholder T.J. Dillashaw (17-4 MMA, 13-4 UFC), who meet in the co-feature.

The featherweight preliminary bout between Zubaira Tukhugov and Lucas Almeida was officially announced as canceled just minutes before weigh-ins began due to a medical issue.
