The UFC 184 main event is official after women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and top contender Cat Zingano hit the scale on Friday, which concluded in an intense stare down between the two fighters.
Rousey was all smiles as she hit the stage with coach Edmond Tarverdyan and nutritionist Mike Dolce before weighing in at a slim, trim 135-pounds.
"This is definitely the biggest challenge I’ve ever had," Rousey said. "You’re going to see the most fantastic win you’ve ever seen."

Zingano was all business as she hit the scale and made the mark at 134.5-pounds. She shook Rousey’s hand as the two fighters met directly in front of UFC president Dana White and after the two fighters separated, she only had two words for the Los Angeles faithful.
"Watch this," Zingano said.
Middleweight fighter Mark Munoz came in at 187.25-pounds — a pound and a quarter over the limit — and he has two hours to cut the additional weight or risk a penalty from his fight purse being taken by the California State Athletic Commission.
Munoz was the only fighter to miss weight on Friday and the rest of the card moves forward with UFC 184 on Saturday night.
