Bloody Elbow is the place to be for live coverage of the UFC 209: Woodley vs. Thompson 2 pay-per-view on Saturday, March 4th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event features a welterweight championship rematch between current titleholder Tyron Woodley and challenger Stephen Thompson. They fought to a draw in their first matchup at UFC 205 last November.

It’s been an eventful Friday for the UFC, as Saturday’s UFC 209 pay-per-view just lost its interim lightweight title bout between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson. Khabib was hospitalized prior to the weigh-ins and on doctor’s recommendation, he was removed from the event. Ferguson weighed in at 154.5 lbs, so he’ll at least get his show money, but it looks like he won’t be on the card.

Apart from that, everyone else made weight for tomorrow’s card. Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley needed the towel, but still came in at 170 lbs on the nose, while Stephen Thompson tipped the scales at 169 lbs.

You can watch the ceremonial weigh-ins at the top of the page at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT.
