Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier weigh in today ahead of their rematch at UFC 257 on Sunday.
The rivals came face to face yesterday when they took part in the traditional press conference in Abu Dhabi.
There was plenty of respect and both men are confident they will come in at or under the 156lb limit this afternoon.
Because it is not a title fight, the two rivals do not need to meet the 155lb limit – but they may do so to make a point to their opponent.
Here is everything you need to know about the weigh-in and how to watch…
What time is the weigh-in?
The weigh-in window will open at 11am UK time and then close at 1pm.

Conor McGregor took full advantage of his first face-off with Dustin Poirier to warn him: You know what's coming.
The rivals will clash for a second time this Sunday when they headline UFC 257 on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.
McGregor knocked out Poirier inside two minutes when they first clashed more than six years ago.
And he appeared to signal to his opponent that the same fate awaits him this weekend.
"You know what it is in there," he said during the face-off. "We both know."
Poirier remained silent throughout while UFC president Dana White concluded the staredown by saying, "F****** awesome, guys."
Since beating Poirier in 2014, McGregor has gone on to become a two-weight world champion.
He also earned £100million when he made his professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather in 2017.
He last fought 12 months ago when he stopped Donald Cerrone inside 40 seconds before seeing his planned three-fight season decimated when the pandemic struck.
But McGregor insists he is now here to stay, adding: "“I feel like I’m only starting, man. I'm a young man. All the money, all the belts, that comes and goes.
"What lives on is a fighter’s highlights. I want my highlight reel to be like a movie. So I can sit with my son as an old man and watch. Please don’t be trying to get rid of me guys, I love it here.
“I’m just an insanely driven young man. I give it my all, that’s it, I’m a hard worker through and through. If something needs to be done, Conor McGregor gets it done."
