INGLEWOOD, Calif. – The drama for UFC 232 came earlier this week with the card’s change in location, but there was no weigh-in day drama for the four title fighters.

Jon Jones (22-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC) and Alexander Gustafsson (18-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) both made weight for their light heavyweight title fight. The winner will be the new champion, and current dual titleholder Daniel Cormier will have that belt stripped, leaving him only the heavyweight champ.

Women’s featherweight champ Cris Cyborg (20-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) and women’s bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes (16-4 MMA, 9-1 UFC) hit their marks for their superfight, which sees Nunes move up in weight to challenge for Cyborg’s 145-pound title in an attempt to become a dual champion.

Jones was the first fighter to step on the scale during the early weigh-in period today at the UFC host hotel in Los Angeles. He was 204 pounds. Gustafsson was 204.5 pounds for their rematch from a 2013 title fight when Jones was champion.

Nunes was 145 pounds for the co-main event, and Cyborg was a pound under at 144 to make their title tilt official.

Check out highlights from their official weigh-ins in the video above. And don’t miss UFC 232, which takes place Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
