Non MMA fans don't understand the draw of watching televised weigh-ins, and let's face it, a lot of MMA fans don't either.

But the weigh-ins can be something really exciting. Here's a list of some of the best weigh-ins moments, in no particular order.

Holly Holm and Ronda Rousey

This moment will go down in infamy. I personally felt this is the moment I knew Rousey would lose. Watch what Holm does to throw the then champion into a rage.

Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman

I thought they were going to make out!

Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor

This short-notice fight had some longtime beef and it boiled over at the weigh-ins.

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier

Ok so technically this wasn't a weigh-in but it was an official UFC face off, and HAD to be on the list. You'll see why.

Pretty much any of Sean O'Connell's Weigh-ins

This dude has my heart.


That time Tom Lawler dressed as Conor McGregor for his weigh-in

That time Alessandro Botti played a prank on the scales at Venator FC III

Needless to say you should be watching the weigh-ins.

And there are three this week!
