This weekend looks to deliver one of the better fight cards of the year, to cap off International Fight Week in Las Vegas. Here are the weigh-in results for UFC 266: Alexander Volkanovski vs Brian Ortega.

UFC 266 is turning out to be one of the most stacked cards of the year. Not only does it feature two title fights between Volkanovski and Ortega, as well as Valentina Shevchenko vs Lauren Murphy, but it also has the return of Nick Diaz, facing Robbie Lawler in his first fight since 2015.

All the way down the card though, there are some amazing fights and exciting matchups. Included in that is the fight that nearly never happened, between Dan Hooker and Nasrat Haqparast.
