MMAjunkie was on scene and reporting live from today’s UFC on FOX 11 fighter weigh-ins, where all 26 competitors on the card made weight for Saturday’s event.
The festivities took place at Amway Center in Orlando, Fla. The same venue hosts Saturday’s fight card.
In the main event, heavyweight contenders Travis Browne (15-1-1 MMA, 6-1-1 UFC) and Fabricio Werdum (17-5-1 MMA, 5-2 UFC) square off, and the winner is expected to be the next challenger for champion Cain Velasquez this fall.
Browne weighed in first and came in at 245.5 pounds looking to build on an impressive 2013 that saw him win three “Knockout of the Night” bonuses. Werdum was 232.5 and will be fighting for the first time since June 2013.
In the co-main event, recent women’s bantamweight title challengers Liz Carmouche (9-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC) and Miesha Tate (13-5 MMA, 0-2 UFC) meet in a fight that is likely to see the loser set way back in the championship hunt. Carmouche was 135 on the button, while Tate was 135.5.
Also on the main card is a “Fight of the Night” candidate in Edson Barboza (13-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) vs. Donald Cerrone (22-6 MMA, 9-3 UFC). Barboza was 156 pounds, while “Cowboy” came in at 155.5 in a battle of elite-level strikers.
