For those fans that will be in Minneapolis for the UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot weigh-ins on Thursday, take note, there has been a last-minute change of venue.

Originally slated for the Target Center, the UFC on FX 5 weigh-ins have been moved to the Pantages Theatre, also in downtown Minneapolis. The move was necessitated by the Minnesota Lynx women’s basketball team, which recently qualified for the WNBA playoffs. The Lynx plays host to the Los Angeles Sparks on Thursday night.

The UFC on FX 5 weigh-in will still begin at 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. ET with doors at the venue opening an hour prior.

The main event features Travis Browne vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in a pivotal heavyweight showdown.

If you won’t be able to attend in person, you can watch the UFC on FX 5 weigh-ins live on MMAWeekly.com beginning at 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT on Thursday, courtesy of the UFC.
