Bloody Elbow is the place to be for live coverage of the UFC 211: Miocic vs. dos Santos 2 pay-per-view on Saturday, May 13th at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The main event is a heavyweight championship fight between current champion Stipe Miocic and former champion Junior dos Santos, who defeated Miocic in a non-title bout back in 2014. Women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk defends her title against Brazil’s Jessica Andrade in the co-main event.

The UFC 211 weigh-ins are in the books. Everybody who stepped onto the scale made weight, including headliners Stipe Miocic and Junior dos Santos, who respectively weighed in at 246 and 245. Joanna Jedrzejczyk was the last fighter to weigh-in, and the strawweight champion came in at 115 lbs on the nose. Her opponent Jessica Andrade was .5 lbs under the limit.

One fight has unfortunately been cancelled. Featherweight prospect Jared Gordon was forced to withdraw after a bout of food poisoning, so he never weighed in. Michel Quinones did make weight, so he’ll be paid his show money.
