Fighters weighed in this morning at the UFC host hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, to make tomorrow’s UFC 236 fight card official. Early weigh-ins began at 9 a.m. ET, followed by ceremonial weigh-ins at 1:30 pm ET which you can watch above.
Two interim titles are on the line as the fight card is headlined by a rematch between current UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway and top-ranked lightweight competitor Dustin Poirier. The two men will compete for the interim lightweight strap, as fans eagerly await the return of the current 155-pound kingpin Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The night’s co-main event is for the interim 185-pound title. Kelvin Gastelum finally gets his shot at UFC gold as he was set to take on current champion Robert Whittaker earlier this year but had that opportunity taken away when the champion had to be sent in for emergency surgery on fight day. Gastelum meets Israel Adesanya, with the winner likely getting the immediate opportunity against Whittaker once he returns.
