The fighters competing on Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 129 fight card in Santiago, Chile, weighed in on Friday. Welterweight contenders Demian Maia and Kamaru Usman headline the event at Movistar Arena.
The fight card was initially slated to feature Usman squaring off with fellow rising star Santiago Ponzinibbio, but the Argentinian fighter had to withdraw because of an injury. The UFC Fight Night 129 headliner did not suffer any drop-off, however, as former welterweight title challenger Maia – who currently sits at No. 7 in the Welterweight Top 10 Rankings – agreed to step in.
