The official weigh-ins for “The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale″ takes place today inside The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Stream Friday’s weight contest live right here on 5thRound.com starting at 7PM ET/4PM PT.
Although a light heavyweight scrap between Stephan Bonnar and Igor Pokrajac is scheduled to headline Saturday’s Spike TV broadcast, all eyes will be on TUF finalists Michael Johnson and Jonathan Brookins to see which lightweight will leave Vegas with the highly coveted six-figure UFC contract.
Both up-and-comers are representatives from Team Georges St-Pierre. Nam Phan was the sole member from Team Josh Koscheck to crack the final four. Unfortunately for the Vietnamese-American, Johnson edged him for a razor-thin split decision Thursday night in the semifinals.
