Tomorrow’s card will be headlined by Cain Velasquez (240 lbs) defending the UFC heavyweight title against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva (263 lbs).

After the conclusion of the weigh-ins, Velasquez told Joe Rogan that he is not taking this fight lightly.

“As far as an opponent, Bigfoot is a dangerous,” Velasquez said. “I am not taking him lightly going into this fight for sure. This right now means everything to me. Staying here, staying in this position, holding the belt here, keeping the belt here”

The co-main event will also be in the heavyweight division as former UFC champion Junior dos Santos (239 lbs) faces Mark Hunt (264 lbs) and the winner will likely receive the next title defense.

Two fighters from the preliminary card were not initially on weight on their first attempt with the fighters being Khabib Nurmagomedov and Nah-Shon Burrell.

Nurmagomedov came in at 158.5 pounds for his lightweight bout against Abel Trujillo. He will not attempt to lose the additional 2.5 pounds and will be fined 20 percent of his purse.

Burrell came in one pound over the welterweight limit of 171 pounds and this is the second straight fight that he has come in heavy. He was given additional time to make weight and he made weight on his second attempt at 171 pounds.
