WATCH: UFC On ESPN 9 Ceremonial Faceoffs

Earlier today, fighters from the UFC came together for the UFC on ESPN 9 weigh-ins. All participants appearing on the May 30 fight card made weight except for Brok Weaver. Weaver will have to give up 20% of his purse when he faces off against Roosevelt Roberts. Returning to Las Vegas inside the UFC’s APEX Center, the UFC will look to make an immediate impact.

Check out the above video for the faceoffs between the fighters. Adhering to social distancing guidelines, the main event will be Tyron Woodley facing Gilbert Burns in a welterweight bout. This will be Woodley’s (19-4-1) first fight since losing the UFC Welterweight Title to Kamaru Usman last year. Burns (18-3) is on a five-fight win streak dating back to the end of 2018

A highlight of the video came from Roberts and Weaver, who’s masks touched one another in an intense staredown. Spike Carlyle also wore a plague-like mask. Here are the weigh-in results from today:
