Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a few hours away from its UFC Fight Night 88 weigh in event, which takes place later today (Sat., May 28, 2016) inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The first fighter is expected to tip the scale at 7 p.m. ET in the embedded video player above.
Red-hot undefeated bantamweight prospects, Thomas Almeida and Cody Garbrandt will collide in the FOX Sports 1-televised main event, the winner of which will inch closer toward a future title shot against reigning 135-pound kingpin, T.J. Dillashaw.
That’s not all.
In the co-main event, former bantamweight champion Renan Barao will look to get back on track after losing two of his last three bouts courtesy of the aforementioned Dillashaw when he packs on 10 extra pounds to battle Jeremy Stephens in a featherweight showdown.
