UFC 203 Preview: Stipe Miocic vs. Allistair Overeem weigh-in results
The UFC's new weigh-in policies has the fighters stepping on the scales during a two-hour window in the morning instead of waiting until the televised weigh-ins in the afternoon. UFC 203 was no different, fighters officially weighing in before 11 a.m. on Friday.
There is a catch. Fighters must make weight when they step on the scale, there is no second chance. When fighters would step on the scales in the old format, for the first time during the televised broadcast, they had two hours to try to shed the extra weight.
It has seemingly had a positive effect on the fighters and been well received to boot.
Coming into the weigh-ins this morning, eyes were all focused on CM Punk, who had been coy when asked about his weight cut. It's hard to get a read on CM Punk when he gives his answers, but it is a legitimate question considering he has never cut weight before.
Here are all the weigh-ins results for UFC 203.
