The UFC 207 official weigh-ins are currently ongoing, but Ronda Rousey wasted no time in getting her weigh-in out of the way. She was first on the scales and hit 135 lbs on the nose, and with Amanda Nunes also weighing 135, tomorrow’s UFC women’s bantamweight championship main event is now official.
You can watch the video of Rousey’s weigh-in at the top of the page (courtesy of MMA Fighting). As you’ll soon notice, as soon as Rousey knew she’d made weight, it was time to high-tail it out of there, more or less keeping in line with her “no-nonsense” theme of not wanting to be in the public spotlight for the duration of this pre-fight buildup.
Rousey appeared for seconds, weighed in, then stormed off without posing for UFC cameras. PR asked her to come back out, but she did not.
