Read Time:1 Minute, 21 Second

The women of UFC 280 have faced off for the final time ahead of this Saturday’s highly-anticipated fights.

Katlyn Chookagian vs. Manon Fiorot is a pivotal match-up for the women’s flyweight division.

The UFC 280 pay-per-view main card features a flyweight fight between number-one-ranked contender Katlyn Chookagian (18-4-0) and surging prospect Manon Fiorot (9-1-0). In a division that is fast being cleaned out by the champion Valentina Shevchenko, a strong performance for the victor could put them in line for a potential 2023 title shot.

Bantamweights will feature on the preliminary card when Karol Rosa (15-4-0) takes on Lina Lansberg (10-6-0). Both women will be looking to close out the year with a victory following a 0-1 start to 2022.

All four women took to the scales at the official weigh-ins earlier today. Fiorot, Rosa, and Lansberg had no problems making weight, however, Chookagian came in at 1.5 pounds over the bantamweight limit and thus will forfeit 20% of her fight purse.

The women have since faced off for the final time at the UFC 280 ceremonial weigh-ins. Take a look via the tweets below.

UFC 280 takes place on Saturday October 22, 2022, from the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The main card will be aired live on pay-per-view from 2pm ET. The preliminary card will air on ESPN+ from 10:30am ET.
