Fight Night 131 Weigh-ins are complete, every0ne made weight.
This is how it’s supposed to be. The UFC has had their share of weigh-in debacles lately, but today in Utica, NY, all fighters made their contracted weights like professionals. The UFC Fight Night 131 Weigh-in was pretty uneventful. The main event consists of a battle of Bantamweights between Jimmie Rivera and Marlon Moraes. Whoever wins that fight will find themselves in the mix for a title shot.
The main event also has some ill-feelings as the two fighters simply don’t get along. More than that, Jimmie Rivera hates Moraes’ manager, Ali Abdelaziz. It’s likely to produce an entertaining contentious fight.
The main card consists of six fights, including a compelling clash of veterans as Jake Ellenberger will go toe to toe with Ben Saunders. It’s going to be a heck of a fight.
