The weigh ins for UFC Fight Night 25 went down in New Orleans on Friday with main eventers Jake Shields and Jake Ellenberger hitting the mark to make their fight official.
Shields takes the fight this Saturday just a few weeks after the passing of his father Jack, but the former Strikeforce champion said he stayed in the bout because his dad was his biggest fan and would have wanted to see him shine in the Octagon.
Meanwhile, Ellenberger will try to make his way up the top ten rankings by beating a highly regarded welterweight contender like Shields.
Co-main event fighters Court McGee and Dongi Yang also made weight, along with fellow former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ winner Jonathan Brookins who faces top ten featherweight Erik Koch.
