UFC on FX 8 takes place tomorrow night live from Jaragua do Sul in Brazil but before the fights take place the fighters hit the scales. The FX main card was set without any issue.
Main event fighters Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold continued their ongoing war of words earlier today at the weigh-ins. Belfort and Rockhold have been going back and forth all week and again had to be separated when they faced off for the partisan crowd in Brazil. The two dynamic strikers are expected to put on a show in tomorrow night’s headliner.
FUEL TV preliminary fighter John Cholish was the lone fighter who officially weighed in overweight. Cholish will now have an hour to make weight.
