UFC on ESPN+ 16: Cowboy vs. Gaethje Weigh-in Video and Results

On Saturday, Sept. 14, the UFC will host its 16th event on ESPN+ from the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

In the night’s main event, two of the lightweight division’s most exciting fighters lock horns as former title challenger Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone takes on former World Series of Fighting champion Justin Gaethje. Cerrone has earned four straight “of the Night” bonuses, but saw a three-fight winning streak snapped at UFC 238 against Tony Ferguson. Similarly, Gaethje has earned bonuses in all five of his Octagon appearances, including his back-to-back knockouts of James Vick and Edson Barboza.

The preliminary card airs live on ESPN at 5 p.m. ET. The night’s main card follows at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN+.


The fighters hit the scales at 7 p.m. ET on Friday, Sept. 13. Video of the action (courtesy of the UFC) appears above, while the results will be posted below as they become available.
