UFC Long Island: Ortega vs. Rodriguez Official Weigh-In Results

UFC Long Island takes place tomorrow afternoon from the UBS Arena, but first come the weigh-in results to make matters official!

In the main event, fireworks are to be expected when Brian Ortega (#2) meets Yair Rodriguez (#3). For Rodriguez, he will be chasing his first UFC title shot with a win.

Regardless of the result, fans and pundits agree that the MMA community is in for an enthralling stylistic clash in this must-see headliner.

The co-main event features a pair of strawweights ranked in the top 15 when Michelle Waterson (#10) takes on Amanda Lemos (#11). Also on the card will be former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate making her flyweight debut against Lauren Murphy; a fan-favorite scrap between Shane Burgos and Charles Jourdain; and on the preliminary card, highly touted prospect Jack Shore puts up his perfect 16-0 record against Ricky Simon.
