TUF 21 Finale: Ellenberger vs. Thompson weigh-in results and live video

Welcome to WrestlingObserver.com's live coverage of The Ultimate Fighter 21 Finale: Ellenberger vs. Thompson weigh-ins from the UFC Fan Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada kicking off at 4 PM eastern time. The event airs on Saturday on FOX Sports 1 at 9 PM eastern time. Preliminary card action kicks off on UFC Fight Pass at 6:30 PM eastern time before moving over to FOX Sports 1 at 7 PM eastern time. This marks the conclusion of the 21st American edition of The Ultimate Fighter and the end of International Fight Week in Las Vegas.

The event will be headlined by a five-round welterweight bout as #9 ranked fighter Jake Ellenberger looks for his second straight win when he takes on Stephen Thompson, who puts his four-fight win streak on the line in the biggest test of his career in his first main event. The finals of TUF 21, which featured American Top Team against the Blackzilians, is in the co-main event of the night as American Top Team representative Hayder Hassan takes on Blackzilian representative Kamaru Usman. Also on the card is a welterweight contest between Jorge Masvidal and Cezar Ferreira, and the UFC debut of Michelle Waterson.

Jorge Masvidal missed weight, coming in at 172.5, 1.5 pounds over the welterweight limit. That was interesting as Masvidal was moving up to the welterweight division after years of competing as a lightweight, and he openly talked about how he had to cut such little weight to make 171 pounds, even being at just 173 pounds over a week ago. Maximo Blanco also missed weight, weighing in at 148.5, 2.5 pounds over the featherweight limit.
