Check out the athletes from UFC on ESPN 35 looking to make their bouts official for Saturday's event at the UFC Apex.

LAS VEGAS – MMA Underground was on scene and reporting live from Friday's official UFC on ESPN 35 fighter weigh-ins, where all but one fighter made weight without issue.

The early weigh-ins took place at the UFC Apex. The same venue hosts Saturday's event, which features a main card that airs on ESPN and streams live on ESPN+ following prelims on ESPN2 and ESPN+.

Among those weighing in were No. 5-ranked bantamweight Rob Font (19-5 MMA, 9-4 UFC) and his opponent, No. 8-ranked Marlon Vera (20-7-1 MMA, 12-6 UFC), who headline the event in a key matchup at 135 pounds.
