All the contestants slated to compete in Saturday night’s “UFC 119: Mir vs. Cro Cop” event will be tipping the scales today inside the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. Stream Friday’s weigh-ins live right here on 5thRound.com starting at 3PM ET/12PM PT.
The card will feature a heavyweight battle between former Octagon title holder Frank Mir and Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic. Mir is looking to bounce back from a TKO loss to Shane Carwin at UFC 111 in March, while CC just submitted Pat Barry at UFC 115 just three months ago.
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira was scheduled to face Mir, however Big Nog suffered multiple injuries and was forced to withdraw.
The good Nogueira name will still be well represented, as the co-main event will feature little bro Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and fast-rising light heavyweight star Ryan Bader. In addition, a welterweight rematch between former champ Matt Serra and Chris Lytle will be showcased in Saturday’s pay-per-view broadcast.
