LAS VEGAS – MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was on scene and reporting live from today’s official fighter weigh-ins for The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale, where all but one fighter made weight on the first attempt.
The festivities took place at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino’s Hollywood Theatre in Las Vegas. Saturday’s fight card takes place at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas with a main card on FX following prelims on FUEL TV and Facebook.
Headliners Urijah Faber (27-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and Scott Jorgensen (14-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC) each were on target for their main-event bantamweight fight. Faber came in at 136 pounds, while Jorgensen was 135.5.
And in the second women’s fight in UFC history, bantamweight contenders Miesha Tate (13-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Cat Zingano (7-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) engaged in an intense staredown after stepping off the scale. Tate was 135.5; Zingano was 136. The winner earns a coaching spot on Season 18 of “The Ultimate Fighter” opposite women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey with a title shot following.
