The official weigh in event for UFC 145: "Jones vs. Evans" went down earlier today (Fri., April 20, 2012) live from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
All 24 fighters scheduled to compete on tomorrow night's fight card hit their respective marks without incident -- except for lightweight John Makdessi, who missed weight by two pounds and has opted to surrender 20 percent of his purse to his opponent, Anthony Njokuani, rather than try to lose the extra baggage.
UFC 145 will be headlined by a Light Heavyweight championship showdown that's been a long time coming, as Jon Jones will defend his 205-pound world title against former division kingpin Rashad Evans. Also on tap is a Welterweight match up that pits rising star Rory MacDonald against British banger Che Mills, while Heavyweight head hunters Brendan Schaub and Ben Rothwell are also scheduled to collide on the pay-per-view (PPV) main card.
