UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar Weigh-in Video and Results


The UFC 156 main event between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar was made official after both fighters officially made weight at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. After the first three fighters missed weight, the remainder of the weigh-ins went smoothly with every fighter hitting their mark.

The three fighters that came in heavy – Francisco Rivera, Edwin Figueroa, Dustin Kimura — were all given an additional two hours to make their weight. Kimura did not weigh-in a second time and forfeits twenty percent of his purse.
