The main event for Wednesday night in Atlantic City is officially set as both Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and Jim Miller made weight just 24-hours ahead of their five round lightweight showdown.
Cerrone looked relaxed as always, smiling all the way through the stare down with Miller, who did much the same as these two top 10 fighters are all about the business at hand and don’t need a fabricated rivalry to make this a compelling matchup.
Further down the card, John Lineker hit the scale at 125.5 pounds, which was an accomplishment in and of itself due to his many problems making the flyweight limit in the past. Many believe Lineker could eventually be a contender for the title, but making weight is the first battle he always has to win.
History was also made on Tuesday as the first ever UFC women’s strawweight fighters weighed in with Brazilian Claudia Gadelha and Tina Lahdemaki both hit the mark for the newly minted 115-pound women’s division. Their fight will kick off the night with the spotlight likely shining on Gadelha as one of the most highly touted and talked about prospects in the division.
