See what occurred on the scale ahead of UFC 263. The UFC has two name conflicts on tap this weekend and yet another sold out audience eager to view them. UFC 263 occurs in the Gila River Arena in Glendale, AZ.. The headliner is UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya vs. Marvin Vettori. The co-main sees UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo defend against Brandon Moreno.
Also on the main card is the return of Nate Diaz, who last competed in 2019. He meets Leon Edwards in a struggle likely to determine a new welterweight challenger. Filling out the pay-per-view is Demian Maia vs. Belal Muhammad and Paul Craig vs. Jamahal Hill.
The prelim cards isalso, for want of a better word, more stacked than many. With Drew Dober vs. Brad Riddell, Eryk Anders vs. Darren Stewart, Lauren Murphy vs. Joanne Calderwood and Movsar Evloev vs. Hakeem Dawodu.
Obviously all 14 fights will only stay on the card if everybody makes it through their weigh-ins and COVID tests. For both title fights all four fighters need to be perfect about the scales.
You can see what happens in the movie below. The stream starts at 12 PM ET.
