Fans invited to Thursday's UFC Fight Night 116 open workouts in Pittsburgh


If you’re in Pittsburgh for UFC Fight Night 116, you’ll have an opportunity to get up close to the fighters at the top of the card.

UFC Fight Night 116 takes place Saturday at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, and it airs on FS1 following an early prelim on UFC Fight Pass.

In the main event, former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold (15-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) takes on former two-division WSOF champ David Branch (21-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC). In the co-feature, welterweight veteran Thiago Alves (22-11 MMA, 14-8 UFC) meets Mike Perry (10-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC).

Prior to the event, fans can attend Thursday’s fighter open workouts at Stout Training in Pittsburgh. The facility is located on the third floor at 1600 Smallman St. The event features the headliners and co-headliners. The fighters will work out and meet the media in 30-minute increments starting with Perry at 11:30 a.m. ET (local time), followed by Branch, Alves and Rockhold.

Of note, there are no ceremonial weigh-ins for the event this week. Instead, only an official weigh-ins ceremony will take place Friday morning. That event is closed to the public, but MMAjunkie will have full coverage Friday.
