Official fighter weigh-ins for UFC 165 are set for Sept. 20 at Maple Leaf Square outside the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
The Air Canada Centre then hosts the following night’s UFC 165 card, which features a main-event light heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and top contender Alexander Gustafsson. In the co-main event, interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao puts his belt on the line against former WEC champ Eddie Wineland.
The UFC 165 main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and Facebook.
The first fighter steps on the scale at 4 p.m. ET local time, and doors open to the public at 3 p.m. The weigh-ins are free and open to the public.

The Q&A is open to the public, though only UFC Fight Club members will be able to ask Weidman questions at the event.
