UFC Vancouver weigh-in results: Headliners hit marks

By Tom Taylor - September 13, 2019

On Saturday night, the UFC will return to our screens with the stacked UFC Vancouver card, airing on ESPN+. 

UFC Vancouver, Donald Cerrone, Justin Gaethje

In the main event of this exciting card, fan favorite lightweight contenders Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Justin Gaethje will collide in a bout rich in title implications. Cerrone will be looking to rebound from a recent loss to top contender Tony Ferguson, while Gaethje will be looking to make it three in a row after recent knockouts of Edson Barboza and James Vick.

In the UFC Vancouver co-main event, Ukrainian finisher Nikita Krylov will step into the cage with former UFC lightweight heavyweight title challenger Glover Teixeira.

Other highlights of the main card include a light heavyweight clash between Jim Crute and Misha Cirkunov, a middleweight bout between Uriah Hall and Antonio Carlos Jr., and the latest appearances from Todd Duffee and Michel Pereira.

On Friday morning, the 24 fighters on the 12-fight UFC Vancouver bill stepped onto the scale to weigh in for battle.
