The fighters hit the scales earlier today in Mexico City, in preparation for the UFC’s latest card Saturday, and the main event bout between Yair Rodriguez and Jeremy Stephens is a go.
Rodriguez vs. Stephens
The featherweight contenders are going to throw down in the card’s headliner, and it will mark the first time Rodriquez (11-2) has fought since last November. In “Pantera’s” last bout, he knocked Chan Sung Jung out with a ducking elbow, with one second left.
Stephens (28-16), meanwhile, fought in May, and dropped a decision loss to Zabit Magomedsharipov.
Both fighters came in at 145 pounds for Saturday’s main event.
