ABU DHABI – After the UFC on ESPN+ 31 weigh-ins took place Friday, so too did fighter faceoffs, and MMA Junkie was on the scene.
In the main event, rising middleweight prospect Edmen Shahbazyan looks to make a name for himself with a signature win against Derek Brunson. And in the co-headliner, Joanne Calderwood, who is forgoing a title shot, takes on Jennifer Maia in a women’s flyweight bout.
Those four fighters made weight, but there was one miss, as well as one fight canceled from the card.
Afterward, everyone came face to face. You can watch the faceoffs in the video above, as well as check out our photo gallery below.
UFC on ESPN+ 31 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and streams entirely on ESPN+.
