UFC 263: Israel Adesanya vs. Marvin Vettori official weigh-in results.

There’s not much time left before UFC 263 kicks off at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, AZ, featuring two championship rematches — topped by middleweight champion Israel Adesanya vs. Marvin Vettori — and the return of Nate Diaz in the first-ever five-round, non-title non-main event.

But before the fighters can make their way to the Octagon, they must first get through the UFC 263 official weigh-ins.

Adesanya and Vettori first met in April 2018, with Adesanya taking a split-decision win. He’d go on to become interim middleweight champion one year later before unifying the middleweight title with a knockout of Robert Whittaker. Adesanya has defended the title against Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa, but he suffered his first loss in March when challenging Jan Blachowicz for light heavyweight gold.

Vettori has won five straight since the loss to Adesanya, most recently topping Kevin Holland in April.

The co-main event will see Deiveson Figueiredo defend the flyweight title against Brandon Moreno in a rematch of their epic UFC 256 matchup from December.

Diaz, who hasn’t fought since his UFC 244 loss to Jorge Masvidal, will meet Leon Edwards, who returned in March against Belal Muhammad, a fight that ended in a no-contest due to an eye poke.

Usman was pictured being choked out by Jose Caceres in 2013, his only ever MMA loss.

But Paul has superimposed his own face as a child onto Caceres, complete with bunny ears.

McGregor was pictured laid on the floor after he was choked out by Khabib Nurmagomedov, while Cormier was snapped in tears.

Askren's shot was from his first round KO loss to Paul last month, while Woodley, like Cormier, was also show in tears.

Paul captioned the photo: "As a father myself, today means a lot to me.

"Even though they’ve all lost a lot… my sons all have made me so proud."

Paul will fight Woodley next in the boxing ring, and has angled for fights against Usman, McGregor and Cormier recently.

Paul has vowed to 'eat up' Woodley in two rounds as he claimed the UFC legend is 'coming in a wounded soldier'.

The YouTube sensation faces Woodley in his fourth professional fight on August 28.

Paul, 24, is currently 3-0 as a pro, all by knockout, but has so far only beaten online rival 'AnEsonGib', ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 36, and retired UFC grappler Ben Askren, 36.

Woodley, 39, is a former UFC champion and made four defences of his belt from 2016-2018.

But after losing the title to Kamaru Usman, 34, in 2019, he has been beaten in his last four and departed the UFC.

Tyron Woodley fights Jake Paul on August 28

Paul argues Woodley's best days are past him and will be 'too powerful' for the American to make it into round three.

He told Showtime: "I think as soon as I touch him, his body is going to go back to that losing mentality, the fight or flight and he's not gonna wanna sit there and fight.

"I don't know, I just see that that's why I've been saying two rounds.

"I'm too sharp, I'm too fast, I'm too powerful and he has 85 days to do this, learn how to box, and unlearn all those bad habits.

"I'm going to eat up his body, I'm going to eat up his head. 'He's not going to know where I'm coming from."

YouTuber Jake Paul appears to be scared to look at opponent Tyron Woodley
