UFC Copenhagen weigh-in results: Main event gets green light

Jared-Cannonier, UFC Copenhagen

On Saturday, the UFC will return to our screens with the interesting looking UFC Copenhagen card.

The card will be topped by a crucial middleweight contender bout between Jack Hermansson and Jared Cannonier. Both men have come into their own in recent bouts, and the victor of their fight in Denmark will be well positioned for a middleweight title shot.

Elsewhere on the UFC Copenhagen card, we’ll be treated to a short-notice but undeniably compelling welterweight bout between grappling specialists Gunnar Nelson and Gilbert Burns, a light heavyweight fight fight between Ion Cutelaba and Khalil Rountree, and the UFC return of Danish welterweight Nicolas Dalby, who will be taking on Brazil’s Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira.

On Friday morning, the fighters on the UFC Copenhagen bill stepped onto the scale to weigh in for their imminent battles. In a rare twist, none of the fighters on the card missed weight.
