The lead-in to Saturday night’s UFC 232 has been one of the more protracted in the company’s history but after Friday’s early weigh-ins in California, at least we’ll have some fights to look forward to on Saturday night.

While it never seems easy with Jon Jones, he easily made weight in his newest bid to claim the UFC’s light heavyweight title and tipped the scales at 204-pounds. His opponent on Saturday, Alexander Gustafsson, registered a weight of 204.5-pounds.

The co-main event between Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes, two of the best female fighters on the UFC’s roster, was also confirmed with Cyborg coming in at 144-pound and Nunes at 145.
