The official weigh in event for WEC 50: "Cruz vs. Benavidez" is in the books. The last of the formalities before tomorrow night's mixed martial arts extravaganza went down earlier today from "The Pearl" at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Things went smoothly as each of the twenty fighters scheduled for action hit their respective weights without incident.
Newly crowned 135 pound champion Dominick Cruz is set to defend his title for the first time ever in the night's featured bout against team Alpha Male product Joseph Benavidez in a rematch of their war from WEC 42 last summer.
Shane Roller, Anthony Pettis, Scott Jorgensen, Bart Palaszewski, Cub Swanson, and several other WEC stars will be in action on the card as well.
