UFC weigh-ins (and really those of any MMA promotion) rarely elicit much in the way of fanfare. For the fighters, making weight is what they’re being paid for, the fight before the fight. For the fans, outside of the most hardcore, this is just another step on the long march to Fight Night.
Rarely is there much to be excited about when it comes to a weigh-in, but rules are meant to be broken, and Frankie Edgar’s first trip to bantamwieght makes the UFC Vegas 7 weigh-in on Friday worth a look. Fans have long wondered what the former lightweight champion would look like at 135lbs, and we’re about to find out.
Also on the card, Ovince Saint Preux returns to light heavyweight after a brief trip to heavyweight, and highly touted bantamweight Timur Valiev makes his debut.
Check back starting at 12PM ET for full results from Friday’s UFC Vegas 7 weigh-in.
