All the fighters slated to compete in tomorrow night’s “WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber” pay-per-view broadcast tipped the scales inside the Arco Arena in Sacramento, California. If you missed the live weigh-ins, don’t fret because we have the stream available below.

Reigning WEC poster boy and former featherweight champ Urijah Faber will look to reclaim his title against current 145-pound king Jose Aldo in the card’s featured contest.

Faber owns a ridiculous 23-3 professional record, however the charismatic superstar has dropped two of his last four contests. Both losses came in championship bouts against Mike Brown.

Aldo, who holds an impressive 16-1 pro mark, has been tagged by many as a younger and longer version of Faber. The Brazilian captured the belt last November at WEC 44 when he earned a vicious 2ndRound TKO over Brown.
