UFC Auckland Weigh-In Results
Earlier this morning, weigh-ins took place for the UFC’s return to New Zealand. UFC Aukland takes place inside the Spark Arena.
Both Dan Hooker and Paul Felder made weight for their main event bout against one another. Hooker (19-8) is on a two-fight win streak and is 6-1 in his last seven fights. He recently beat Al Iaquinta at UFC 243 via unanimous division. It was Hooker who laid down the challenge to Felder (17-4), who is also on a two-fight win streak. “The Irish Dragon” last beat Edson Barboza via split decision at UFC 242.
Some notes from the weigh-ins:
– Angela Hill (11-7), who is competing in her eighth fight since 2018, made weight. She is taking another last-minute bout, fighting on two weeks’ notice after fighting just three weeks ago.
– Maki Pitolo v. Takashi Sato was cancelled following an illness by Pitolo.
UFC Aukland takes place on Sunday in New Zealand, which means later in the afternoon/evening on Saturday for the United States.
