The UFC 277 weigh ins have concluded and only two fighters missed weight, both were in the prelim line up. Other than that, the fighters are primed and ready to put on a show this Saturday, July 30th.
The main event for the card are the UFC Ultimate Fighter coaches, and championship rivals, Juliana Pena vs Amanda Nunes. Pena upset the former champion when she submitted Nunes at UFC 269. Neither fighter has fought since, making this Pena’s first title defense.
Also on the card, the co-main event of the night, are top flyweights #1 Brandon Moreno vs #2 Kai Kara France for the interim flyweight title. The title was vacated by Deiveson Figueiredo when a miscommunication occurred which over stated the seriousness of an injury. Undoubtedly, the title will be unified after the conclusion of the nights bout.
