The UFC San Antonio headliners were the first two fighters to appear at Friday’s official weigh-ins for Saturday’s event, which takes place at AT&T Center. Sandhagen weighed in at 135.5 pounds and Vera immediately followed at 136 pounds.

Vera is No. 6 in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings, one spot behind Sandhagen at No. 5.
