SAN JOSE, Calif. – MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was on scene for today’s official fighter weigh-ins for UFC on FOX 7, where all 26 competitors successfully made weight for Saturday’s card.

UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson (18-2 MMA, 6-0 UFC) meets final Strikeforce lightweight champ Gilbert Melendez (21-2 MMA, 11-1 SF, 0-0 UFC) in the main event. Each fighter was on the mark for the title fight, which will be Henderson’s third defense of the title.

In the co-main event, former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir (16-6 MMA, 14-6 UFC) meets unbeaten Strikeforce heavyweight tournament winner Daniel Cormier (11-0 MMA, 8-0 SF) in a fight that was supposed to take place this past fall in Strikeforce before an injury took Mir out of the bout.

Also on the FOX-televised main card, Nate Diaz (16-8 MMA, 11-6 UFC) returns after his December title fight loss to Henderson to meet Josh Thomson (19-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) in a lightweight bout, and Jordan Mein (27-8 MMA, 1-0 UFC) steps in on short notice to face Matt Brown (16-11 MMA, 6-5 UFC).

Friday’s weigh-ins took place at California Theatre in San Jose. Saturday’s fight card takes place at HP Pavilion with a main card on FOX (8 p.m. ET) following prelims on FX (5 p.m.) and Facebook (4 p.m.).
