The official weigh-ins for UFC 266 have concluded, and every bout on the card will proceed without issue.
Every fighter successfully made weight for tomorrow night’s PPV, including the participants of all three five-round bouts on the card. In the first five-rounder, Nick Diaz returns in a middleweight bout against Robbie Lawler in a rematch of a fight that took place 17 years ago. This special attraction bout will be followed by the two title bouts.
First, Valentina Shevchenko will seek to continue her abusive reign over the flyweight division when she faces veteran Lauren Murphy. Finally, in the main event, Ultimate Fighter coaches turned rivals Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega will compete for the prize of the UFC featherweight championship.
UFC 266 takes place live tomorrow, Saturday, September 25, 2021, from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Yesterday, we posted our staff picks for the main card, which you can find right here.
