The official weigh in event for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale: "Faber vs. Jorgensen" went down tonight (Fri., April 12, 2013) from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
All fighters hit their respective weight without incident save for Maximo Blanco, who needs to cut an additional pound for his fight against Sam Sicilia or risk forfeiting a portion of his purse.
The TUF 17 Finale features a main event between perennial 135-pound contenders Urijah Faber vs. Scott Jorgensen, while the top middleweight finalists from this season's combat sports reality show -- Uriah Hall vs. Kelvin Gastelum -- will hook 'em up for a shot at the "six-figure contract."
Also scheduled for the "Sin City" fight card is the second-ever women's UFC bantamweight bout between Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano, as well as a heavyweight contest that pits Travis Browne against Gabriel Gonzaga.
