VIDEO: Polyana Viana and JJ Aldrich face off at the UFC 227 ceremonial weigh-ins

Friday night at the UFC 227 ceremonial weigh-ins, Polyana Viana and JJ Aldrich faced off for a final time before the pair compete against each other in a strawweight contest on the main card of Saturday night’s pay-per-view event.

Is Polyana Viana set to become the UFC’s next strawweight star?

Viana (10-1) looks to follow-up on a successful promotional debut in which she submitted Maia Stevenson in the very first-round of their UFC Fight Night 125 encounter. The 27-year-old Brazilian has finished all ten of her career wins, four knockouts and six submissions.

Aldrich (6-2) looks to build on her two-fight winning streak, unanimous decisions over Chanmi Jeon and Danielle Taylor. In 2016 she competed on The Ultimate Fighter 26, coached by Joanna Jedrzejczyk, and ultimately losing out to eventual winner, Tatiana Suarez.

Ahead of Saturday’s fight, both women faced off at the UFC 227 ceremonial weigh-ins. Take a look below, courtesy of ReactQ:

UFC 227 takes place this Saturday August 4 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, United States. The main card featuring Viana vs. Aldrich will be aired live on pay-per-view from 10pm EST.
