Tomorrow night, the UFC will touch down in the Czech Republic with the exciting UFC Prague card.

This card will be topped by a light heavyweight contender bout between fearsome Pole Jan Blachowicz and Brazilian kamikaze Thiago Santos. The winner figures to fit right into the light heavyweight title picture.

Elsewhere on the card, we’ll witness appearances from notables like Stefan Struve, Gian Villante, Liz Carmouche, John Dodson, Petr Yan and Diego Ferreira.

On Friday morning, the fighters on this interesting looking UFC Prague card stepped onto the scale to weigh in for battle. While the headliners hit their respective marks, the weigh ins were not without trouble, as Klidson Abreu and Diego Ferreira both missed weight. Luckily, both of their fights will go on as planned.
