The UFC Fight Night 56 : Shogun vs Saint Preux weigh-in results from Uberlandia, Minas Gerais, Brazil are below.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Maurcio ‘Shogun’ Rua and Ovince Saint Preux came in just one pound apart and the bout is now official that both fighters made weight. Saint Preux answered the call on relatively short notice after Jimi Manuwa was injured roughly two weeks ago.
John Lineker who is in the co-main event has had weight cutting troubles in the past, missing the mark three times while in the UFC and it happened again today as he came in at 126.7 pounds. He will have one hour to lose the .7 pounds required to meet the 126 pound threshold for his weight class.
