The fighters are weighed in and we're set for an amazing night of fights from MSG ... but the weigh-ins didn't go off without a hitch. 

Kelvin Gastelum continues to be one of the more unprofessional fighters in the promotion, as his fight with Cowboy is off due to another failed weight cut. Elsewhere, the "Lightweight" bout between Jim Miller and Thiago Alves is still a go, but Alves missed weight by about 7 lbs and the contest will be contested at 163 lbs. 

Prelims kick off on UFC Fight Pass at 7pm ET before switching to FS1 at 8pm. The PPV main card airs at 10pm. 

Enjoy!

I imagine they make it a 5-fight PPV now opposed to the six they wanted. They could always move Edgar/Stephens or Khabib/Johnson onto PPV, but that could hurt their prelim numbers. And then they'd have a one-fight Fight Pass portion. They'll probably just go the route of the traditional 5-fight PPV.

Gastelum ain't letting Oliveira run away with that weigh missing record, it's the only record he's in the run for.

Jacare weighed in today at 189 lbs. Wouldn't it make sense for him to fight Tim Kennedy?

Did they pay Cerrone for 205 and give him a fight at 206?

Buddy I hear ya...I always watch these fights through alternative sources but wife and I both agreed...we were not gonna gamble with poor quality or buffering... so we broke down and bought this one... Will probably do the same for a Conor/Diaz 3rd fight... just some fights ya dont want to risk.this is gonna be a great night of fights... I just wish they would get there act together on the Early PM here, Prelims here, than switch over here to watch the Main... they really need to fix this!!
