Fans invited to open workouts, ceremonial weigh-ins at UFC 227 in Los Angeles

If you’re heading to the “City of Angels” for this week’s UFC 227 card, you have some fight-week events you can attend for free.

UFC 227 takes place Saturday at Staples Center in Los Angeles, and the main card airs on pay-per-view following preliminary-card bouts on FX and UFC Fight Pass.

In the main event, bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw (15-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC) takes on former champ, former teammate and fierce rival Cody Garbrandt (11-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) in a rematch for the title.

In the co-feature, dominant flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (27-2-1 MMA, 15-1-1 UFC) meets Olympic gold medalist wrestler Henry Cejudo (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) in another title-fight rematch.
