UFC FN 55 Weigh-In Results: Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold are Ready for War
By FCF Staff
Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping have cleared the final hurdle for their highly anticipated, grudge match Friday night, as both men made weight today in Sydney, Australia.
Rockhold came in at 185.8 pounds for the main event tilt, while Bisping tipped the scales at 185.7. As everyone expected would be the case, the two contenders shared more than a few words after they weighed in, but the event went off without any incident.
Two fighters, however, failed to make weight on their initial attempts. Flyweight Louis Smolka came in at 126.8 for his bout with Richie Vaculik, and Vik Grujic weighed 171.6 for his scrap with welterweight Chris Clements. The fighters have two hours to cut the additional weight.
UFC Fight Night 55 will be hosted by the Allphones Arena and will be broadcast throughout North America on Fight Pass.
