Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held weighs ins for UFC 179 earlier today (Fri., Oct. 24, 2014), and saw all of the 22 fighters scheduled to compete on the card make weight, which means the 11-bout line-up that goes down tomorrow night 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. Chad Mendes, are one-step closer to becoming a reality. All that remains are the winners and losers to be determined inside the Octagon live on pay-per-view.
MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 179 fight card on fight night, starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET, and then the remaining under card balance on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET before the PPV start time at 10 p.m. ET.
See you then!
