We are at the final hurdle for Ultimate Fighting Championship competitors looking to compete tomorrow (Sept. 18) in Las Vegas, Nevada, and that is the UFC Vegas 37 weigh-ins.

The fighters on the 14 bout card took to the scales today at the same venue as the event, the UFC APEX. All but one of the 28 fighters on the card hit their marks, including main eventers Anthony Smith and Ryan Spann.

Lightweight Rong Zhu was the lone fighter who did not hit his designated weight. He missed the non-title lightweight limit by two pounds. His bout with Brandon Jenkins will go ahead as planned with him forking over 20% of his purse.

The card is headlined by a battle of top-15 light heavyweights when Smith looks to inch closer to title contention when he takes on a surging talent in Spann.

UFC Vegas 37 kicks off with preliminary action at 4 pm ET and then is followed by the main card at 7 pm ET. The entire event will air exclusively on ESPN+.
