The official weigh in event for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 87 mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza is set to pop off a little later today (Sat., May 7, 2016) from inside Ahoy Rotterdam in Netherlands.
The first fighter is expected to tip the scale at 11 a.m. ET in the embedded video above.
“Overeem vs. Arlovski” is exactly what it sounds like: a fight card headlined by Alistair Overeem vs. Andrei Arlovski; however, this titanic tilt wasn’t assembled just to see a couple of monsters stand and bang. The winner could move on to make a run at the 265-pound title.
That’s not all.
In the colossal co-main event, Stefan Struve looks to break out of his 1-3 slump against another struggling heavyweight in the form of Antonio Silva, also 1-3 over his past couple of appearances. No doubt “Skyscraper” will have the hometown crowd on his side.
