    UFC 160 weigh-in results: Velasquez, Silva set for main event | News

    LAS VEGAS – MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps) was on scene and reporting live from today's UFC 160 fighter weigh-ins, where all 10 main-card fighters made weight and are official for Saturday's card.

    The festivities took place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the same venue that hosts Saturday's pay-per-view card.

    UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and challenger Antonio Silva headline the UFC's annual Memorial Day weekend show. Challenger Silva was 263 pounds, while champ Velasquez came in at 240.

    In the co-main event, former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos meets Mark Hunt – and it's possible the winner will advance to the next title shot against the Velasquez-Silva victor. Hunt came in at 264 pounds, while dos Santos was 239.

    In a title eliminator in the lightweight division, two-time challenger Gray Maynard meets T.J. Grant. The winner moves on to a title fight against champion Benson Henderson, likely later this year. Maynard came in at 156, while Grant was 155.

    Rounding out the main card, Glover Teixeira and James Te Huna meet in a light heavyweight showdown, and hard-hitting lightweights Donald Cerrone and K.J. Noons open the card. Te Huna (206) and Teixeira (205) both were on their marks. Cerrone (155) and Noons (156) each were on target, as well.

    Two preliminary-card fighters missed weight in their first attempts on the scale. Khabib Nurmagomedov came in at 158.5 pounds for his lightweight fight against Abel Trujillo (155). And Nah-Shon Burrell, making his UFC debut, was 172 pounds for his fight against Stephen Thompson (170). Both Nurmagomedov and Burrell were given two hours to cut the extra pounds.

    Nurmagomedov looks ridiculous. I have a hard time rooting for him just because of the stupid wig he always wears. Not sure what Tyson is doing there. They must be giving him the winner of JDS vs Hunt lol.

    I donno what the hell is these guys ^ problem is, but Nurmagomedov is a beast, he's never been in a boring fight.

    Who cares what he looks like?

    Nurmagomedov obviously is trying to play a character, he understands that an entertaining personality is what can get him a title shot. So he chosed to act like an absolute douchebag, last time with his t short about BJJ and this time this.

    Trujillo looks like a monster for a 155 pounder, really big.

    Roop looked almost like an anorexic man.

    Khabib should probably lay off the antics and the shoving matches if he's not going to make weight.

    Not sure what's going on with Burrell. Didn't he initially miss weight last time too?

    Mark Hunt is my hero.
