This weekend’s UFC Vegas 61 card had almost been overshadowed by the news that the promotion was locking out fans and media from the event, for reasons unknown.

With everything from a movie shoot to a private function for Mark Zuckerberg floated as possibilities for the move, an underwhelming card on paper was almost immediately looked past.

That was certainly not fair to veterans like 44-year old Francisco Trinaldo, nor newcomers like Invicta FC alum Chelsea Chandler. Let alone the headlining pair of Mackenzie Dern and Yan Xiaonan, which found Dern looking for a second straight win, and Yan looking to snap a two-fight skid.

Weigh-ins for UFC Vegas 61 takes place Friday morning in Las Vegas, full results can be found below.
