The UFC held the official weigh-ins yesterday for UFC on ESPN 9. Tyron Woodley (170.5 pounds) and Gilbert Burns (170.5 pounds) were both on weight and ready for their headlining welterweight contest set for later tonight.

Brok Weaver (157.5) failed to make weight for his scheduled lightweight fight against Roosevelt Roberts. He now has to forfeit 20 percent of his purse to Roberts. The fight appears to be moving forward as scheduled.
