With UFC On Fuel TV 9 within one day of taking place, Gegard MoUSAsi and the other competitors are getting ready for their bouts in Sweden tomorrow.The fighters have hit the scale and things got pretty heated between Marcus Brimage and the highly touted Conor McGregor, so watch out for that featherweight battle! Reaza Madadi also seemed pretty tense after his opponent, Michael Johnson, came out clad in USA printed clothes. The two had to be separated. Here is how the fighters fared:
Gegard MoUSAsi (204) vs. Iliir Latifi (206)
Ross Pearson (155) vs. Ryan Couture (154)
Matt Mitrione (259) vs. Phil de Fries (248)
Diego Brandao (145) vs. Pablo Garza (146)
Akira Corassani (145) vs. Robbie Peralta (146)
Michael Johnson (155) vs. Reza Madadi (155)
Chris Spang (170) vs. Adlan Amagov (170)
Marcus Brimage (145) vs. Conor McGregor (145)
Ben Alloway (170) vs. Ryan LaFlare (171)
Michael Kuiper (186) vs. Tom Lawlor (185)
Papy Abedi (170) vs. Besam Yousef (168)
So all fighters make weight, and I am actually quite pumped for this one! Also noteworthy is what Rashad Evans was talking about during the fighter intro for Latifi, Rashad spoke about Latifi’s superb wrestling pedigree and the fact that Latifi had been brought in as a wrestling partner for Antonio Silva at The Blackzilian’s camp.
