STUNNING Halle Berry was the star attraction during the weigh-in between Rose Namajunas and Zheng Weili ahead of UFC 268.

Namajunas and Weili looked tense as they glared at one another, with Berry fascinated by proceedings in a video obtained by TMZ.

After the pair embraced, Berry cracked a smile and flexed her muscles alongside the fighters.

The A-lister looked in fighting shape, wearing black leather trousers and a black shirt.

Berry had her own reasons for the being at the weigh-in, as she’s about to be seen as an MMA fighter herself.

The movie star will next be seen in Netflix’s new movie, Bruised alongside Valentina Shevchenko.

It tells the story of a disgraced MMA fighter, who finds redemption in the cage and the courage to face her demons when the son she had given up as an infant unexpectedly reenters her life.

Berry has reportedly been hard at work in the gym to get into character for the role.

It’s set to be released on November 19.

Meanwhile, Namajunas and Weili will lock horns at UFC 268 on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Last time out, the American beat the Chinese star with a head-kick knockout just 78 seconds into the title fight at UFC 261.

She won the belt back nearly two years after losing it to Jessica Andrade.
