Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently tied a ribbon around its UFC Fight Night 86 weigh in event for "Rothwell vs. Dos Santos," held earlier today (Sat., April 9, 2016) inside Zagreb Arena in Zagreb, Croatia, host venue for tomorrow's mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza on FOX Sports 1.
UFC "Zagreb" weigh in results with full video replay here.
"Rothwell vs. Dos Santos" is exactly what it sounds like: a fight card headlined by Ben Rothwell vs. Junior dos Santos. Their 265-pound main event could prove to be make or break for "Big" Ben's desired title shot, as well as the fight that confirms -- or refutes -- talk surrounding the end of the "Cigano" era.
Watch them come face-to-face below:

In the titanic co-main event, Gabriel Gonzaga will try to keep his head attached when he trades blows with heavyweight bruiser Derrick Lewis. "Napao" holds a marked advantage in the grappling department, but it may not matter once the "Black Beast" starts dropping bombs.
Mugs get mean in Zagreb:
