The official weigh-ins for the Elite XC primetime special "Saturday Night Fights" are set for tomorrow (Friday, May 30) at 2 p.m. ET OUTSIDE the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Be sure to bring the Kevlar.

Bad jokes aside, the event, which is located at 165 Mulberry St. in Newark (just two blocks from Newark Penn Station), is free and open to the public.

Therefore, if you're in the area be sure to stop by and check out the festivities.

Here's the card for the historic event in its entirety:

If you're in the area, come down and check out the fighters as they go through with the last of the formalities before getting down on Saturday night. I'm pretty sure Gary Shaw will be emceeing this thing, and he's always good for a few laughs.
