Filed under: Featured Videos , News , UFC , Videos The UFC debuts in Cleveland this week for UFC 203, and MMAjunkie is “On the Ground” in the new UFC host city. Today, all 22 fighters stepped on the scales to make the evening’s contests official. One UFC newcomer missed weight in his debut, while longtime veteran Alistair Overeem (41-14 MMA, 6-3 UFC) pushed his luck with Ohio Athletic Commission – but he’ll still meet UFC heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic (15-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) in the UFC 203 headliner. Additionally, the MMAjunkie team had a quick chat with UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos (18-4 MMA, 12-3 UFC) before attending a Q&A session with undefeated UFC bantamweight contender Cody Garbrandt (10-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC), who had strong words for current champ Dominick Cruz (22-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC). The day closed down with the UFC 203 ceremonial weigh-ins, where welterweight Phil “ CM Punk ” Brooks (0-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Mickey Gall (2-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) added a little flavor to their highly anticipated matchup, and Cleveland’s own Jessica Eye (11-5 MMA, 1-4 UFC) fired up the crowd with an all-out shove of opponent Bethe Correia (9-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC). MMAjunkie lead staff reporter John Morgan recaps the busy day from inside Quicken Loans Arena
