“Battle on the Bayou” official as all fighters make weight

The UFC has returned to New Orleans and, as they say around those parts, “Laissez les bons temps roulez!” Though the card may not be the sexiest on paper it is littered with competitive match-ups and features a pair of Ultimate Fighter winners in addition to the return of popular 185er Alan Belcher.

However, before the good times can roll, headliners Jake Shields and Jake Ellenberger will need to hit their weight-related marks along with the rest of their UFN 25 peers. As always, Five Ounces of Pain will be here to bring you live results from the scale when the festivities kick off at 6:30 PM EST.

The UFC’s “Battle on the Bayou” will be shown live on Spike TV this Saturday night starting at 9:00 PM EST with preliminary cards airing through the promotion’s Facebook page a few hours earlier.

All fighters made weight and are ready to square off tomorrow night in the Octagon.
