Saturday’s UFC main event flyweight title fight is set after champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and challenger Tim Elliott stepped on the scale in Las Vegas at Friday’s early morning official weigh-in.
Running out of contenders, the UFC used season 24 of The Ultimate Fighter to bring flyweight champions together from around the globe to fight it out for a chance to challenge Johnson.
Elliott, the former Titan FC champion, won four fights on the show to make his way to the title fight. He’s not new to the UFC, however. He fought in the Octagon as recently as February 2015, exiting the promotion on a three-fight skid.
After hitting the championship mark of 125 pounds, Elliott will look to make up for his rough first run through the promotion by upsetting the top flyweight in the world.
