The UFC has left ‘Fight Island’ (for now) and is back at the APEX facility in Las Vegas. Tomorrow night the promotion will be presenting it’s 5th COVID-era show from their personal facility.

Headlining the action is a middleweight clash between Derek Brunson and Edmen Shahbazyan. In the co-main, flyweight Joanne Calderwood takes on Jennifer Maia.

Check out the weigh ins live below, starting at 12 p.m. ET (with video courtesy of our friends at MMA Fighting).
