Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held its UFC Fight Night 83 weigh in event for "Cerrone vs. Oliveira" earlier today (Sat., Feb. 20, 2016) inside CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, host venue for tomorrow night's mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza on FOX Sports 1.
All fighters scheduled to compete in "Steel City" hit their respective marks without incident, though it should be noted the bantamweight bout between Cody Garbrandt and Augusto Mendes was changed to a catchweight of 142 pounds to accommodate "Tanquinho's" short-notice signing.
Headlining this weekend's big shebang is the welterweight showdown pitting 155-pound import Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone against Brazilian banger Alex "Cowboy" Oliveira. In the "Steel City" co-main event, Derek Brunson continues his march toward middleweight title contention with a 185-pound brawl opposite Roan Carneiro.
