Tomorrow night sees the third and final installment of the UFC’s Fighting in the time of Coronavirus programming block. Saturday’s festivities at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, FL are headlined by a heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris.
No one who weighed in missed weight. One fighter, Irwin Rivera, will make weight later because they must first be tested for COVID-19. Rivera is a replacement for Mike Davis, who is out of his fighter with Giga Chikadze for a non-COVID-19 medical issue. Despite not having opponents Marvin Vettori and UFC Hall of Famer Urijiah Faber stepped on the scales, too. Fun.
