LAS VEGAS – MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was on scene and reporting live from today’s UFC 160 fighter weigh-ins, where all 10 main-card fighters made weight and are official for Saturday’s card.
The festivities took place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the same venue that hosts Saturday’s pay-per-view card.
In the co-main event, former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos meets Mark Hunt – and it’s possible the winner will advance to the next title shot against the Velasquez-Silva victor. Hunt came in at 264 pounds, while dos Santos was 239.
In a title eliminator in the lightweight division, two-time challenger Gray Maynard meets T.J. Grant. The winner moves on to a title fight against champion Benson Henderson, likely later this year. Maynard came in at 156, while Grant was 155.
Rounding out the main card, Glover Teixeira and James Te Huna meet in a light heavyweight showdown, and hard-hitting lightweights Donald Cerrone and K.J. Noons open the card. Te Huna (206) and Teixeira (205) both were on their marks. Cerrone (155) and Noons (156) each were on target, as well.
Two preliminary-card fighters missed weight in their first attempts on the scale. Khabib Nurmagomedov came in at 158.5 pounds for his lightweight fight against Abel Trujillo (155). And Nah-Shon Burrell, making his UFC debut, was 172 pounds for his fight against Stephen Thompson (170). Both Nurmagomedov and Burrell were given two hours to cut the extra pounds.

MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET)
