0

The Ultimate Fighting Championship finishes off a busy February on Saturday the 23 with UFC on ESPN+3 live from the O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic. The event is headlined by a light heavyweight bout between top 10 contenders Jan Blachowicz and Thiago “Marreta” Santos.

Blachowicz enters the bout as the No. 4-ranked light heavyweight, while Santos sits at No. 7. A convincing win for either fighter could find them in line for a title shot.

Ahead of Saturday’s event, all fighters had to step onto the scale for the official weigh-ins.

Two fighters — Klidson Abreau and Diego Ferreira — failed to hit their marks and will forfeit 20 percent of their purse to their opponents. Blachowicz and Santos, meanwhile, both hit their mark as did co-main event participants Marcos Rogerio de Lima and Stefan Struve.

UFC on ESPN+3 will kickoff bright and early at 11:00 a.m. ET with the preliminary card headlined by a welterweight fight between Dwight Grand and Carlo Pedersoli Jr. The main card is scheduled to kickoff at 2:00 p.m. ET.
