The big night is almost upon us, as Jon Jones will enter the cage for the third time in seven months Saturday at UFC 239, defending his light heavyweight title against Thiago Santos.
UFC 239 goes down Saturday, and Friday night in Las Vegas, the full card stepped on stage for the ceremonial weigh-ins, and a final face-off. The main event was made official early Friday morning, as both light heavyweight champ Jon Jones and challenger Thiago Santos made weight. With Amanda Nunes and Holly Holm both making weight as well (Holm came in well under the bantamweight limit at 133.5lbs), the co-main event was also a go.
All that was left was a final show for the fans. A live stream of the ceremonial proceedings kicks off at 7PM ET — watch it above!
