According to a Dec. 27 post from Bleacher Report, all fighters competing on the historic UFC 168 card in Las Vegas, Nev., will weigh-in on Friday evening.

In the UFC 168 main event, UFC middleweight champ Chris Weidman puts his title on the line against former UFC titleholder Anderson Silva.

"I know it's going to be a better version of me," Weidman said. "For the last [fight with Silva], I went through Hurricane Sandy, I had two surgeries, a year layoff, and … for that fight I had no excuses in my mind why I should lose.

"… For this fight there's really no excuses for me to lose. It's perfect timing. I'm completely healthy. I haven't gotten out of shape since the last fight. So I was able to work on a lot of different things for this camp and it really changed a lot. … I just feel like a lot better and complete fighter."

Silva, 38, will be looking to reclaim his middleweight title, while Weidman hopes to extend his unbeaten streak.

"I feel the same as a lot of the other champions. I feel like to solidify my championship, I need to defend my belt," Weidman said. "And especially, going at the same guy, you know, everybody saying it was a fluke. But it's not really extra pressure, it's just more motivation to go out there and prove those guys wrong.

"It's exciting, you know? I'm excited to go out there and prove them wrong. There's really not any extra pressure. I really don't put pressure on myself."

In the UFC 168 co-main, Ronda Rousey puts her bantamweight belt on the line against hard-hitting knockout ace Miesha Tate.

Rousey has won 10 fights in a row, while Tate dropped two of her last three.

All fighters on the UFC 168 card will weigh-in at 7 p.m. on Dec. 27.
