On Saturday night, the UFC will return to our screens with the shockingly stacked UFC Boise card.
This UFC Boise card will be headlined by a heavyweight contender bout between former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, and Bulgarian Sambo specialist Blagoy Ivanov, a former World Series of Fighting heavyweight champ who has long been considered one of the best heavyweights outside the UFC.
The co-main event, meanwhile, will occur at 170 pounds, where “Super” Sage Northcutt will attempt to earn his first W in the UFC welterweight division opposite the dangerous Zak Ottow.
Other highlights of the card occur the long-awaited return of three-time UFC featherweight challenger Chad Mendes, who battles Myles Jury, a compelling women’s bantamweight bout between Cat Zingano and Marion Reneau, and a bafflingly under-promoted fight between Alexander Volkanovski and Darren Elkins.
On Friday morning, the 26 fighters on this 13-bout UFC Boise card took to the scales to weigh in for their respective battles.
In a rare twist, every single fighter on the bill hit their mark. That’s right, not a single fighter missed their contracted weight for this UFC Boise card. So much for Friday the 13th being bad luck.
Here are the full UFC Boise weigh-in results (via MMAJunkie).
