UFC Fight Night 42 weigh-in results: Henderson, Khabilov cleared

The UFC will host their first card in Albuquerque, New Mexico at Tingley Colisseum, headlined by a lightweight five round main event between former WEC and UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson and highly touted Russian prospect Rustam Khabilov. With an impressive victory essential for both fighters in the talent stacked 155lbs division, expect each fighter to look to make a statement in this intriguing battle pitting two of the best grapplers in the division.

In the co-main, Diego Sanchez looks to bounce back from a two fight losing skid in front of his home fans against respected British lightweight Ross Pearson, who has gone unbeaten in his last three. A pivotal flyweight bout is also featured on the six fight main card, with #1 ranked John Dodson fighting #5 ranked John Moraga, with both fighters looking to earn a rematch with champion Demetrious Johnson later this year.

Rafael dos Anjos looks to return to winning ways against welterweight-turned-lightweight Jason High, who makes his divisional debut after a run of two UFC wins in a row. Also in the lightweight division, Yves Edwards looks to keep his UFC run alive with a win over Piotr Hallman, with the German looking for his second UFC victory. Ranked bantamweights Erik Perez and Bryan Caraway will kick off the main card.
