The UFC will hold their Fight Night card on Saturday live from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. But before any of the fights can take place all of the scheduled participants must first take place in the official weigh-ins, which is exactly what they did on Friday afternoon.
Main event competitors Lyoto Machida and Yoel Romero both came in at the middleweight limit and their pivotal bout is official.
