UFC on ESPN 31 weigh-in highlights, faceoffs and photo gallery

LAS VEGAS – All the pre-fight activities are in the books for UFC on ESPN 31 following Friday’s official weigh-ins and fighter faceoffs.

In the main event, Rob Font (19-4 MMA, 9-3 UFC) takes on former featherweight champion Jose Aldo (30-7 MMA, 12-6 UFC). Font weighed in under the limit at 134 pounds. Aldo had no issue, either, and hit the non-title limit of 136.

In the lightweight co-feature, Rafael Fiziev (10-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and Brad Riddell (10-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) each weighed 155.5. In addition, Jimmy Crute (12-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) was 205.5 for his light heavyweight bout against Jamahal Hill (8-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC), who was 205.

All 30 fighters made weight without issue for the event, which takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and airs on ESPN and streams on ESPN+. However, Jared Vanderaa (12-6 MMA, 1-2 UFC) was later ruled medically ineligible for the event, and his contest with Azamat Murzakanov (10-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) was scrapped.

At the conclusion of the official weigh-ins, the fighters came face to face for final staredowns. Check out the highlights in the video above and a photo gallery from the weigh-ins and faceoffs below.
