Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held weighs ins for UFC 159 earlier today (April 26, 2013), and saw all 24 fighters scheduled to compete on the card make weight, which means the 12-bout card that goes down tomorrow night at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, is now official.
Conclusion of the weigh ins means tomorrow night's fights, headlined by a light heavyweight championship showdown pitting the sensational Jon Jones against his least credible opponent, Chael Sonnen, are one-step closer to becoming a reality. All that remains are the winners and losers to be determined inside the Octagon live on pay-per-view.
MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the UFC 159 main card action on fight night (Sat., April 27, 2013), which is slated to begin promptly at 10 p.m. ET on PPV. The latest fight-by-fight updates of the live action will begin to flow earlier than that around 6 p.m. ET with the "Prelims" bouts on Facebook and FX Channel.
