UFC Fight Night 56 is set to go tomorrow night in Uberlandia, Brazil, and all of the fighters for the event made weight this afternoon.
In the main event, former light-heavyweight champ “Shogun” Rua will take on Ovince St. Preux, and the contenders came in at 206 and 205 pounds respectively for the scrap.
There was likely a big sigh of relief from John Lineker’s camp today, as the flyweight came in a bit heavy at first, for his bout with Ian McCall. Lineker has had extensive issues making weight in the past, but on his second attempt, he hit the 126 mark. McCall also came in at 126.
So, here are the official weigh-in results for Saturday’s event. It’s a crazy, busy weekend for combat sports, as UFC FN 55 and GLORY 18 go tonight, while tomorrow, UFC FN 56 and Bernard Hopkins vs. Sergey Kovalev will take place.
