The UFC makes a quick turnaround following a strong start to 2021 this past Saturday, with UFC Fight Island 8 going down Wednesday. The rare mid-week part is part of the build-up to UFC 257, also in Abu Dhabi, and airs on ESPN (TSN in Canada) with the unfortunate start time of 12PM ET.
Get those DVRs ready.
Wednesday’s main event will see two welterweights looking to push their way up to the top five in the rankings. Michael Chiesa and Neil Magny have both won three straight, and both would have a case for a top five spot with a dominant performance on Wednesday.
Also on the card, TUF Brazil 3 winner Warlley Alves faces Mounir Lazzez, who fights out of nearby Dubai. With a limited number of fans in the arena, he should have some very audible support. Roxanne Modafferi, Tyson Nam, and Lerone Murphy are also in action Wednesday.
Check below for full results from Tuesday’s weigh-in! It’s an early one, kicking off at 12AM ET.
All fighters made weight for Wednesday’s card.
