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!

39-37 Joanna

Karolina was so close.  She needs to do that again to pull off the win.

What a war.  Joanna was taken to the limit in this fight and Karolina put on a valiant effort in that fight.

Solid win for Joanna.  Would hate to be the next fighter to take her on.  Unless it's Andrade.  Then that would be an absolute brawl.
