Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held weighs ins for UFC 163 earlier today (Aug. 2, 2013), and saw all but one of the 24 fighters scheduled to compete on the card make weight, which means the 12-bout card that goes down tomorrow night at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is now official.
Conclusion of the weigh ins means tomorrow night's fights, headlined by a featherweight championship showdown pitting Jose Aldo vs. Chan Sung Jung, 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 UFC 163 card on fight night (Sat., Aug. 3, 2013), starting with the Facebook "Prelims," which are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. ET, right on through the FX-televised under card bouts at 8 p.m. ET and then main card PPV action, which is slated to begin at 10 p.m. ET.
See you on fight night!
