Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held weighs ins for UFC Fight Night 26 earlier today (Aug. 16, 2013), and saw all the 26 fighters scheduled to compete on the card make weight, which means the 13-bout card that goes down tomorrow night at the TD Garden Arena in Boston, Massachusetts, is now official.
Conclusion of the weigh ins means tomorrow night's fights, headlined by a light heavyweight showdown pitting Mauricio Rua vs. 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 network television.
MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire card on fight night (Sat., Aug. 17, 2013), starting with the Facebook "Prelims," which are scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. ET, right on through the FOX-Sports televised under card bouts and then main card action, which is slated to air at 8 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
See you then!
