The UFC’s latest PPV offering, UFC 236 in Atlanta, had fighters hitting the scales Friday morning for the official weigh-in.
The UFC in back on PPV this weekend, but it’s a very different feel. UFC 236 will be the first card of the ESPN-exclusive era. That means ESPN+ is the exclusive point of purchase for the event — if you live in the U.S., that is. Other nations, it’s business as usual.
The event also marks the first time a pair of interim title fights top a UFC event. In the main event slot, featherweight champion Max Holloway is on a mission for gold (in a second weight class) when he takes on Dustin Poirier for the second time. And the man actually known for being on a mission for gold, Kevin Gastelum, will meet Israel Adesanya with interim middleweight gold on the line. That serves as the card’s co-main event.
The winners of these bouts should be set to face champions Khabib Nurmagomedov and Robert Whittaker upon their return.
Weigh-ins for the event kick off at 9AM EST — check back for results as they come in!
