Ben Rothwell and Junior Dos Santos hit the mark at UFC Fight Night weigh-ins

BY foxsports • April 9, 2016

The heavyweights will take center stage at UFC Fight Night from Croatia as Ben Rothwell looks for his fifth win in a row when he takes on former champion Junior Dos Santos.

Rothwell and Dos Santos hit the scale on Saturday at the official weigh-ins with both fighters looking fit and ready for action.

Rothwell came in at 264 pounds, just two pounds under the heavyweight limit while Dos Santos was trim at 241 pounds.

The co-main event featured a heated stare down that forced UFC officials to step in between them as Derrick Lewis stepped off the scale and charged towards opponent Gabriel Gonzaga.

Cooler heads prevailed but that matchup should provide some serious fireworks on Sunday.

All of the fighters made weight ahead of the Sunday show that kicks off on FS1 at noon ET followed by the main card at 2pm ET.
