UFC 150 Weigh In Results
DENVER, CO (TheSpread) – The weigh-ins for UFC 150 have concluded and the two fighters in the main event have successfully made weight.
UFC 150 takes place Saturday night and the main card will air live on Pay-Per-View at 10PM ET. The event takes place from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. Preliminary bouts will air live on FX at approximately 8PM ET. The main event of Saturday’s card is for the UFC Lightweight Championship, as Benson Henderson (16-2) defending his title against former champion, Frankie Edgar (14-2-1).
According to the oddsmakers, Henderson is favored to retain his title, as he has odds of -185 to win on Saturday night, while Edgar comes in with odds of +155. On Friday night, both men came in on weight as the champion hit the scales at 154.4 pounds and Edgar weighed in at 154.6 pounds. The two had an intense stare down following the weigh in. This is a big rematch for both, as their first bout was very close. Despite weighing in at nearly the same weigh, Henderson will be the much bigger fighter Saturday night as he adds a lot of water weight while Edgar stays relatively the same size.
In the co-main event, lightweights Melvin Guillard (30-10-2) and Donald Cerrone (18-4) square off. Guillard actually failed to make weight, as he hit the scales at 157.5 pounds for their 155-pound bout. A fighter is actually allowed to weigh 156 pounds in a non-title bout, but Guillard was still 1.5 pounds over that total. Cerrone weighed in at exactly 155 pounds and he comes in as the favorite, as he has odds of -300 to win, while Guillard has a money line of +240. Typically failing to make weight is a bad sign for a fighter, as they are usually missing weight because they can’t possibly work up any more sweat, they struggled with their diet or they suffered an injury. Guillard was already the underdog for the fight, and this doesn’t help.
