UFC 167 will kick off today with the weigh ins. Each and every one of the fighters on the card will step on the scale to make each bout official. First up are the preliminary fighters. This card is absolutely stacked from top to bottom, so every fight is worth watching.
Up first will be Light Heavyweight battle between Cody Donovan vs Gian Villante. Ironically, both men are looking to rebound from respective losses to Ovince St. Preux. The loser of this fight could possibly be looking for work elsewhere.
The debut of Anthony Pettis’s younger brother, Sergio Pettis, will go down tomorrow night online for free. He will be taking on veteran Will Campuzano in a Bantamweight clash.
Jason High and Anthony Lapsley close out the online prelims tomorrow night in a Welterweight tilt.
The Fox Sports 1 prelims will be kicked off by Erik Perez and Edwin Figueroa. Both men are looking to bounce back from losses in their Bantamweight fight.
The card continues with another Welterweight clash between Rick Story and Brian Ebersole. Interesting note on Story; he is the only man to defeat Johny Hendricks inside the Octagon.
Ed Herman and Thales Leites will square off in a Middleweight fight. This was originally scheduled to be a fight between Herman and Rafael Natal. Natal stepped in on short notice against Tim Kennedy at UFC Fight for the Troops 3 instead.
The main event of the prelims is a fantastic match up between Lightweight stand-outs, Evan Dunham and Donald Cerrone. Cerrone has announced that he will move down to Featherweight regardless of the outcome tomorrow night.
