All the contestants slated to compete in Saturday night’s UFC 118 event will be tipping the scales today inside the TD Garden in Boston. Stream Friday’s weigh-ins live right here on 5thRound.com starting at 4PM ET/1PM PT.
The card will feature a lightweight rematch between reigning champ Frankie Edgar and former king BJ Penn.
The 155-pounders battled for 25 grueling minutes in some of the most difficult rounds to score in mixed martial arts history. One extra jab here or a flurry there could have meant the difference between leaving UFC 112 with UFC gold or not.
Edgar did a masterful job in using his cat-like quickness to engage just long enough to land shots, while avoiding damage in return. The Jersey boy’s speed and movement kept Penn off balance for much of the contest to earn a unanimous decision victory.
