UFC 239 Ceremonial Weigh-Ins
You could feel the tension on the air during the ceremonial weigh-ins on Friday night. Guests of the UFC VIP Experience were given a privileged vantage point of the affairs, as Jon Jones faced off against Thiago Santos and Amanda Nunes stood face-to-face with title challenger Holly Holm. But the head-to-head that got the most crowd reaction was when Jorge Masvidal and Ben Askren stood mere inches from each other after months of trash talk.
UFC VIP Experience Hospitality
Before the main card starts, guests of the UFC VIP Experience are treated to premium in-arena hospitality, featuring complimentary food, drinks and entertainment.
Hospitality played host to the exclusive Mic'd Up with Modelo Q&A session featuring Dan Severn, Calvin Kattar, Rob Font and Andrea Lee. Severn told tales of what it was like to compete in the early days of the UFC, while Kattar, Font and Lee compared that to what it looks like to be a fighter in the modern age.
Fighters were actively enjoying hospitality as well, walking around and meeting fans throughout the night.
