The UFC 168 weigh-ins have concluded from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., and Examiner.com was on hand to cover all the festivities.
In this highlight video, see both the co-main event and main event fighters tip the scales for their respective bouts.
In the co-main event, women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey defends her title against her arch nemesis Miesha “Cupcake” Tate. The two locked horns in March 2012 with Rousey taking home the victory and the Strikeforce women’s championship in the process. Now, after filming the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter with one another, they met again to settle their epic feud.
In the main event, perennial “GOAT” Anderson Silva meets UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman. After ruling over the middleweight division for the better part of a decade, Silva lost his UFC gold to the surging American at UFC 162 this past July. On Saturday, Silva looks to regain his momentum and regain his spot atop the 185 pound division.
UFC 168 is this Saturday, live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., and will air on Pay-Per-View. Check your local listings.
