The UFC host hotel in Jacksonville, Florida is where the Ultimate Fighting Championship held the weigh-ins for the 11-fight card that is UFC on ESPN 8.
The event is the third in a week taking place at the Vystar Veterans Memorial Area in Jacksonville, Florida. So far 23 of 24 fighters for the card have made weight including Marvin Vettori (203.5) & Urijah Faber (153.5) who are serving as alternates. Just hours ago Irwin Rivera was slotted in to replace Mike Davis in facing Giga Chikadze. Rivera will be weighing in separately as the promotion awaits his Covid-19 test results. Both the main event, a top ten heavyweight contest and the co-main event, a top 15 women’s strawweight match-up both have been given the green light.
The entire card will be simulcasted on ESPN & ESPN+ starting at 6 pm ET.
