Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held weighs ins for UFC on FX 8 earlier today (May 17, 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 in Brazil, is now official.
Conclusion of the weigh ins means tomorrow night's fights, headlined by a middleweight showdown pitting the old dinosaur Vitor Belfort against the young lion Luke Rockhold are one-step closer to becoming a reality. All that remains are the winners and losers to be determined inside the Octagon live on cable television.
