On Saturday, the UFC will return to our screens with the under-the-radar UFC Rio Rancho card.
The event will be headlined by a light heavyweight rematch between top contenders Jan Blachowicz and Corey Anderson. The expectation is that the winner could be the next man in line for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
The UFC Rio Rancho co-headliner, meanwhile, will see Ultimate Fighter season 1 winner Diego Sanchez return to the cage for a welterweight fight with the wild man Michel Pereira.
Other highlights of the card include appearances from a number of established names, such as Devin Clark, Montana De La Rosa, Yancy Medeiros, Lando Vannata, Tim Means, John Dodson, Jim Miller, and Ray Borg.
On Friday morning, these fighters and the others on the UFC Rio Rancho bill stepped onto the scale to weigh in for battle. Unfortunately, the early weigh-ins were marred by one blunder, as Ray Borg missed the flyweight limit by two pounds
Given that this is not the first time Borg has missed weight — he’s struggled to hit his mark multiple times previously — this could be a story worth following.
