The party is all set to begin in Washington, USA. UFC on Versus 6 has a bunch of promising matchups lined up for Saturday and weigh-ins just went down, with almost all the fighters making weight without much ado, as reported by our collaborator Junior Samurai. Only Mike Easton’s opponent, Byron Bloodworth, couldn’t make the cut and will be penalized but will fight.
In the evening’s main event, Dominick Cruz defends his bantamweight belt against Demetrious Johnson, who works on his ground game with Lloyd Irvin, while the lumbering Stefan Struve takes on Pat Barry. Now Brazil’s Rafaello “Trator” faces Yves Edwards, who turned 35 today and was already celebrating as he weighed in, with a party hat and whistle and the works.
