UFC Vegas 17 Weigh-Ins: Stephen Thompson and Geoff Neal On Point For Main Event


After a long line of consecutive UFC events, the final card of the year goes down this weekend, with UFC Vegas 17. This is the full results of Friday’s early weigh-ins.

UFC Vegas 17 was originally expected to be headlined by the highly anticipated bout between Leon Edwards and Khamzat Chimaev. However when that bout was a canceled, Stephen Thompson and Geoff Neal were promoted to the main event. There are still some incredible fights on this card, including the return of Jose Aldo, Greg Hardy, Anthony Pettis, and many more. Unfortunately, as has been the case with the last several events, the card has lost a few more fights due to COVID-19, as the event approaches. Rick Glenn vs Carlton Minus, Belal Muhammad vs Dhiego Lima, and Aiemann Zahabi vs Drako Rodriguez were all canned from the card after positive tests from one combatant or another.
