Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is little more than 24 hours away from its upcoming UFC on ESPN 7 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, scheduled for tomorrow night (Sat., Dec. 7, 2019) inside Capital One Arena in Washington D.C.
But before any of the “Overeem vs. Rozenstruik” fighters can step inside the Octagon, they’ll first have to prove they can compete within the contracted weight limit, determined by today’s early and official weigh-ins inside the promotion’s host hotel.
The first fighter is expected to tip the scale at 9 a.m. ET in the embedded video above.
UFC on ESPN 7 is headlined by the heavyweight showdown pitting top ranked contender, Alistair Overeem, opposite undefeated 265-pound rising star, Jairzinho Rozenstruik. In the UFC on ESPN 7 co-main event, once-beaten flyweight sensation, Cynthia Calvillo, looks to win her third straight against streaking Brazilian standout, Marina Rodriguez.
