Watch the UFC Vegas 19 weigh-in video, live on MMAWeekly.com on Friday, Feb. 19, at 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT. Heavyweight contenders Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis finally square off in the main event, both men looking to take a step into title contention.
Blaydes currently sits at No. 2 in the UFC heavyweight rankings, while Lewis is ranked No. 4. The winner likely won’t get an immediate shot at the belt, as champion Stipe Miocic is currently slated to fight Francis Ngannou with the winner expected to defend against Jon Jones.
The UFC Vegas 19 co-main event features another pivotal bout. No. 6 ranked women’s bantamweight contender Ketlen Vieira squares off with Yana Kunitskaya, who currently sits at No. 7 in the division.
