We’ll have the results as all twenty-four fighters from the UFC 239 card hit the scales Friday morning for the official weigh-in!
Las Vegas, NV — The UFC was back in Las Vegas for UFC 239, this year’s big International Fight Week card. With just a day to go before the show, it was time for fighters to hit the scales Friday morning.
Jon Jones was in the main event, this time taking on middleweight-turned-205’er Thiago Santos. In the penultimate bout of the evening, it was women’s 135lb champ Amanda Nunes facing off against ex-champ Holly Holm.
Gilbert Melendez was back after an extended absence, competing at featherweight opposite Arnold Allen — for weigh-in watchers, that might be one to keep an eye on.
Champ Amanda Nunes weight in within the first twenty minutes, and did so with the barrier. While looking a bit rough, she made championship weight. So too did Jon Jones, making weight with ease, and the main event was official!
Holly Holm would way in well under the bantamweight title fight limit at 133.5lbs, making the co-main event official prior to the first hour of weigh-ins. Claudia Gadelha was last to weigh in, hitting 115lbs. With that, all fighters had made weight, and well within the time allotted!
Check back for weigh-in results from UFC 239! Fighters hit the scales starting at 9AM local time in Las Vegas!
