UFC 190 Weigh-in Report

Published

on

The weigh-ins for UFC 190 took place this evening in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The card is of course headlined by the women’s bantamweight title match between the “most dangerous woman in unarmed combat”, the champion, Ronda Rousey and challenger Bethe Correia. The event is taking place in Correia’s home country, but you wouldn’t guess that based on the reactions both fighters received as they took to the scales, with Rousey receiving by far the better ovation from the normally partisan Brazilian crowd. Any thoughts of a “home-field advantage” for Correia have well and truly gone out the proverbial window.

Elsewhere, the co-main event of the evening features a 205lb contest between two PRIDE and Brazilian legends in Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. The finals of TUF: Brazil 4 will also take place, as Fernando Bruno takes on Glaico Franca in the lightweight final, while Dileno Lopes faces Reginaldo Vieira at bantamweight.

The main card is completed by the other Nogueira brother, Antonio Rodrigo, who fights Stefan Struve, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva fights Soa Palelei and last but not least, the UFC debut of former WSOF women’s strawweight champion Jessica Aguilar who faces stiff competition in another home-country fighter Claudia Gadelha.

All fighters made weight at the first time of asking with the exception of Clint Hester, who missed his mark by 0.7lbs, weighing at 186.7. However, after the weigh ins were completed, he would return to the scales and make the 186lb limit on his second attempt, thus avoiding being fined a percentage of his purse.

The full weigh-in results are as follows:

Ronda Rousey (135) vs Bethe Correia (134) – Women’s bantamweight title
