UFC Singapore: Weigh-ins

After all the pre-fight events, the excitement and anticipation starts kicking in from the official weigh-in. Held at 6.00 pm at the skating rink of Marina Bay Sands, I suddenly found a greater reason to like MMA – because these fit guys start stripping down to their underwear. Ok, just kidding! Some of them even had to remove their underwear (censored with a huge towel of course).

All fighters passed the weigh-in. They fight according to their weight classes so they need to be within the limits. In the UFC, the weight classes are:

  • Flyweight (up to 125lbs)
  • Bantamweight (more than 125lbs to 135 lbs)
  • Featherweight (more than 135 lbs to 145 lbs)
  • Lightweight (more than 145 lbs to 155 lbs)
  • Welterweight (more than 155 lbs to 170 lbs)
  • Middleweight (more than 170 lbs to 185 lbs)
  • Light Heavyweight (more than 185 lbs to 205 lbs)
  • Heavyweight (more than 205 lbs to 265 lbs)
