UFC 227 weigh-in results: Both title fights are good to go

UFC 227, TJ Dillashaw, Cody Garbrandt

Tomorrow night, the UFC returns to Los Angeles, California with the exciting UFC 227 card.

This card, which will emanate from the hallowed Staples Center, will be headlined by a bantamweight title rematch between champion TJ Dillashaw and challenger Cody Garbrandt. The pair first met less than a year ago, in the co-main event of UFC 217 in November. On that night, Dillashaw defeated Garbrandt via second-round knockout to reclaim the UFC bantamweight belt.

The UFC 227 co-main event, meanwhile, will occur at flyweight, where dominating divisional champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson will attempt to defend his title for a whopping 12th time against former Olympian Henry Cejudo. Johnson has defeated Cejudo once before, mauling him to a first-round TKO in April of 2016.

Other highlights of the main card include a featherweight contender bout between Cub Swanson and Renato Moicano and a middleweight bout between Kevin Holland and Thiago Santos.

On Friday afternoon, the 24 fighters on this 12-fight card took to the scales to weigh in for their respective battles.

Remarkably, all 24 fighters on the bill made weight. In these trying times of frequent weigh-in blunders, that’s a definite cause for celebration!
