UFC 239: Weigh In Results
Ahead of what is set to be the biggest card of the year so far, the fighters stepped on the scales on Friday morning.
In the main event of the evening, Jon Jones will look to defend his light heavyweight title for the third time since reclaiming the belt back in Dec. 2018, after his defeat of Alexander Gustafsson. Across the cage, “Bones” will find the UFC Veteran, Thiago Santos, who since moving up to 205lbs has gone 3-0, and now finds himself with the chance to dethrone one of the greatest fighters of all time.
Santos weighed in at 204.5lbs while Jones tipped the scales at 205lbs.
In the co-main event, the women’s bantamweight title will be on the line, as double champion Amanda Nunes will look to cement her legacy as the greatest women’s fighter ever with a win over Holly Holm. Nunes needed the hoop to weigh in, but hit her mark of 135lbs. Holm on the other hand weighed in at 133.5lbs.
