From the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colo., for tomorrow night’s Ultimate Fight Night card, televised live on VERSUS beginning at 9pm ET / 6pm PT. All of the fighters made weight, seemingly without difficulty.  There was a one hour Q&A session with Nate “The Great” Marquardt before the fighters hit the scales. Marquardt, a Coloradoan, stated that his fellow Colorado fighters should have an significant advantage due to their acclimation to the altitude, especially as the fights go into the third round.

At the weigh-in, Clay Guida was the most energized person in the room as he bounded up the stairs and seemed unable to stand still while on the scale. When main eventers Jon Jones and Brandon Vera came face to face it looked like there was going to be a conflict. The two combatants were further separated and from then on Jones refused to stand near Vera.  Vera stated, “Be sure to tune in tomorrow because this may be fight of the year.”
