Predictions: 5 of 11 Winners, 3 Perfect, 365 Points   |   Tied for 711th

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!

Great win for Pennington and a tough loss for Tate.  Hope Pennington gets Peña next.

Im watching this on my laptop in a hotel room in Iowa and Im so ******* pumped. Didn't put my picks in but I have a little bet on Rocky +240 by decision and I'm so glad to see her get another win! I've enjoyed watching her improve with every fight.

Sad to see Miesha hang em up but her last couple of fights have been pretty rough, even her title win wasn't going her way lol

I knew she would retire her striking isn't up to par but good on her for noticing she could do movies or something
