UFC 175 weigh-in results: Weidman, Machida cleared

UFC 175 is perhaps the biggest card of the year, being hosted on Saturday night at Mandalay Bay Events Centre in Las Vegas, NV, featuring two UFC title fights. In the middleweight division, Chris Weidman will defend his 185lbs strap for just the second time, facing former light heavyweight kingpin Lyoto Machida in the main event. In the co-main, Ronda Rousey looks to continue her unbeaten streak and defend her UFC women’s bantamweight title in the process against Alexis Davis.

Elsewhere on the card, Stefan Struve makes his long awaited return in the heavyweight division, facing 7-3 Matt Mitrione. Former TUF runner-up Uriah Hall meets Thiago Santos in the middleweight division, with both fighters looking for their second win in a row in the talent stacked division. Marcus Brimage makes his bantamweight debut to open the card, facing Russell Doane, who has won four of his last five.

The preliminary portion is also intriguing, with Urijah Faber meeting Alex Caceres to top the FOX Sports billing, who are both looking to make an impact in the wide open bantamweight division. Another one to watch comes on the UFC Fight Night segment, with former RFA champion Kevin Casey making his return against former Legacy champion Bubba Bush.
