Las Vegas, NV — The UFC Vegas 31 official (and only) weigh-ins took place Friday morning in Las Vegas, with the full card of 22 fighters successfully making weight.

Saturday’s Fight Night card, technically UFC on ESPN 26, is headlined by lightweight action between Islam Makhachev and Thiago Moises. That fight should land the winner a chance at entering the title picture in the 155lbs division.

In the co-main event, the return of former UFC women’s bantamweight champ Miesha Tate should draw plenty of eyes. After nearly five years away from the sport, Tate returns against Marion Reneau — with the 44-year old Reneau in the final fight of her career.

Face-offs were an orderly affair on Friday, with Jeremy Stephens managing not to shove anybody this time out, and Islam Makhachev and Thiago Moises posing for a photo together. Check out our exclusive highlights from Friday morning below!
