The UFC’s attempt at kicking 2011 off in style began this afternoon in Las Vegas, as the twenty-two competitors set to square off at “UFC 125: Resolution” all stepped on the scale with the goal of making weight and securing their place on the company’s first card of the year. As hoped, all fighters hit their marks meaning the planned line-up will go on as originally scheduled.
Headlining the event is a title-fight between lightweight champion Frank Edgar and Gray Maynard. In addition to putting his belt up for grabs, Edgar will be attempting to avenge the only loss of his career, as Maynard outpointed the 155-pound champ in a 2008 match-up.
Joining them on the card, light heavyweights Thiago Silva and Brandon Vera are scheduled to test each others’ skills in hopes of re-claiming their divisional mojo, slugger Chris Leben fights decorated Marine veteran Brian Stann, Nate Diaz attempts to deliver the first loss of Dong Hyun Kim‘s career, and Clay Guida puts his non-stop motor on the line against Japanese striker Takanori Gomi.
