All systems go for UFC's first-ever Fight Night event here in the country with the official weigh-ins having taken place yesterday, May 15, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, where the fights will also be held.
The weigh-ins rolled out according to script save for one fighter who seemed to have had an extra cup of rice. Preliminary-card fighter Royston Wee failed to make weight at 137 pounds, and for that he is being reportedly fined 20 percent of his purse. As for the other 23 fighters, the scale-tipping proceedings went smoothly, including featherweight headliners Frankie Edgar and Urijah Faber, who both tipped in at a cool 146.
Before the actual weigh-in, the crowd had a chance to throw in some questions at guest fighters Miesha Tate and the current UFC flyweight champion, Demetrious Johnson. Also present at the event were UFC's own Arianny Celeste and the first Filipina Octagon girl, Red dela Cruz.
Without further ado, here is the complete list of the official weight results of all fighters, from the preliminary up to the main card:
