Ok, so the UFC are doing their latest event behind closed doors — possibly at the behest of billionaire Mark Zuckerberg.

The event itself is headlined by Mackenzie Dern and Yan Xiaonan, both of which are hoping that one more win can catapult them into the title picture at 115 lbs. The co-main event is veterans Randy Brown and Francisco Trinaldo going at it in the welterweight division.

Further down the card there’s a wacky match-up that pits Aleksei Oleinik vs. Ilir Latifi. Also on the card, former strawweight title contender Jessica Penne takes on Tabatha Ricci.

Before any of that happens, though. The fighters need to make weight. You can watch that action below with video via The Underground.

The official weigh-ins are scheduled to take place at 12 PM ET.
