All fighters made weight ahead of UFC 217, but Johny Hendricks once again stole the show on weigh-in day.
Before Hendricks took to the scales, he proceeded to explain to the media why he was using the towel. After a 40-second explanation, Hendricks weighed-in at 185.8, thus not needing to have explained himself in the first place.

It was a comical moment to say the least. Outside of that, there was little drama with all fighters involved in title fights hitting the mark. Joanna Jędrzejczyk was the last fighter to weigh-in, but even she didn’t require the hoop to hit 115-pounds.
Enjoy the highlights and make sure you tune in for the ceremonial weigh-ins later today.
