In what will be a UFC first, the “official” weigh-ins won’t be televised.
The California State Athletic Commission are instituting new rules and the fighters will weigh-in officially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday. The commission officials and a representative of the other fighter’s team will be present when the fighter decides to hit the scales. If they don’t make weight on the first try, like before they will re-weigh a second time and if they don’t make it, they will have two hours to lose the weight.
The live stream, which will stream below at 4 p.m. pst/7 p.m. est, will see Joe Rogan announce the weights for the record and the fighters will do staredowns.
UFC 199 sees Jessica Andrade making her debut at strawweight facing former InvictaFC atomweight champion Jessica Penne. Their match will air on the Fox Sports 1 Saturday.
