We are all set for our MMA double-header tomorrow night, with UFC Vegas 37 & Bellator 266 both set to take place on Saturday, September 18. We’ve got the full scoop for you below.
UFC Vegas 37: Smith vs. Spann Weigh-In Results
Tomorrow night, UFC Vegas 37 takes place from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the man event, Anthony Smith (#6) will face Ryan Spann (#11). Both fighters successfully made weight, as did the co-main eventers Devin Clark and Ion Cutelaba.
Also competing on the card will be the #14-ranked lightweight Arman Tsarukyan. Tsarukyan said that he would be willing to give unranked fighters an opportunity, and he will do just that when he faces Christos Giagos. Will Tsarukyan continue to build on his hype and potentially put himself in line for the grudge match against Dan Hooker he’s been actively pursuing?
Only one fighter missed weight, that being lightweight Rong Zhu, who came in two pounds over the lightweight limit ahead of his preliminary card bout against Brandon Jenkins.
The main card begins at 7:00 PM ET, with the preliminary card starting at 4 PM. The entire card will be available on ESPN+. You can find the official weigh-in results below, courtesy of UFC.com:

San Jose’s SAP Center will play host to Saturday night’s Bellator 266 event. The headline feature for the card will be Yoel Romero making his Bellator debut against “Mr. Wonderful” Phil Davis.
Yoel Romero has said that he plans on fighting into his 50s, so this debut could be a fresh start as opposed to a career’s winding down. How will he fare against the #3-ranked light heavyweight? We will find out tomorrow night! In the co-main event, the #4-ranked welterweight Neiman Gracie will be in action when he takes on Mark Lemminger.
All four of the above fighters successfully made weight. There was one fight cancellation, however. With Eddie Abasolo unable to make it to the scales, his main card bout against Art Hernandez has been canceled.
