Watch the UFC on FOX 25 Ceremonial Weigh-ins at 3 PM PST right here.

UFC on FOX 25 Ceremonial Weigh-ins

We’ll see the fighters on the scale, and face off at 3 PM PST.

The official weigh-ins took place this morning already but this afternoon, the fighters will go through it again for the UFC on FOX 25 Ceremonial weigh-ins.  They will step on the scales, and then post and do face-offs with their opponents. It is all done of course so the media and fans can get photos and build hype for the card. It’s usually pretty entertaining and there are some heated exchanges.

The main event features a make or break fight between Chris Weidman and Kelvin Gastelum. If Weidman loses this fight, his legacy, as well as his standing near the top of the Middleweight division, may likely be a thing of the past. Kelvin needs the win to continue his climb up the ranks of the division towards an eventual world title shot.

The co-feature fight is between Dennis Bermudez and Darren Elkins. It’s a fun fight between two veterans who both can finish a fight with one shot. Should be fireworks.

You will find the weigh-ins right here.
