This weekend sees a crucial match-up in the bantamweight division main eventing the card in Vegas. This is the complete weigh-in results for UFC Vegas 27: Rob Font vs Cody Garbrandt.

This weekend’s main event sees the return of former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt, who is looking to get his second straight win after dealing with a horrific battle with COVID-19. Looking to stand in his way is fellow top contender Rob Font, who rides a three-fight winning streak heading into his first fight of 2021.

The co-main event features another former champion, as inaugural 115lb champ Carla Esparza takes on highly touted prospect Yan Xionan. Top to bottom, this card is filled with young fighters looking to make their name, and former title challengers alike.

A total of 26 fighters took to the scales for the UFC Vegas 27 early weigh-ins on Friday morning. Unlike last weekend’s UFC 262, there will not be a ceremonial weigh-in, as this event takes place in the UFC Apex Center with no fans in attendance.

On short notice, David Dvorak got a replacement opponent for his flyweight bout on the main card.
