UFC Fight Night 88 weigh-in highlights: Stephens shoves Barao, Garbrandt trash talks Almeida

Published

Things got a little heated earlier today inside of the Mandalay Bay Events Center when former bantamweight champion Renan Barao (33-3) got a little too close for his opponent Jeremy Stephens’ (24-12) comfort after both men made weight ahead of their co-main event contest tomorrow night on FOX Sports 1. This will be Barao’s first fight at featherweight since joining the UFC ranks.

The main event staredown between undefeated bantamweights Thomas Almeida (21-0) and Team Alpha-Male product Cody Garbrandt (8-0) was a little less dramatic. Garbrandt appeared to take exception to Almeida’s decision to wear sunglasses indoors. If you’re any good at reading mouths, maybe you can tell us what he said after watching the highlight above.
