WATCH: UFC ON ESPN 8 Ceremonial Weigh-Ins
Earlier today, fighters from the UFC came together for the UFC on ESPN 8 weigh-ins. All participants appearing on the May 16 fight card made weight. Taking place inside the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, the fighters are ready to go.
Check out the above video for the faceoffs between the fighters. Adhering to social distancing guidelines, the main event will feature Alistair Overeem facing a returning Walt Harris. This will be Harris’ first appearance inside the octagon since his step-daughter tragically passed away. The co-main event will be Angela Hill against Claudia Gadelha.
Something to keep an eye on: The status of Irwin Rivera, who must complete a separate testing camp due to being a last-minute replacement.
