UFC Fight Night 83 is set after all the fighters stepped on the scale at Saturday’s weigh-in event in Pittsburgh, Penn.
Sunday’s fight card was originally slated to pit Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone against Tim Means in a five-round welterweight main event, but after Means ran afoul of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, he was pulled from the fight.
What resulted was perhaps an even more intriguing bout, pitting Cowboy against Cowboy. Not quite an Old West showdown, Cerrone squaring off with Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira has the potential for a shootout.
Both men easily made weight on Saturday.
Although the card was riddled by injuries and illness, it remains full at 13 bouts.
The UFC Fight Night 83 co-main event features Top 15 ranked middleweights Derek Brunson and Roan Carneiro.
