The first leg of the UFC’s invasion of the United Kingdom went off successfully this afternoon after all 24 fighters hitting the scales in London, England for UFC on Fuel 7 met their required marks and made things official. Included in the bunch, of course, were headlining bantamweights Renan Barao and Michael McDonald.
Barao (29-1), who is the division’s interim champ and hasn’t been beaten since his professional debut, clocked in at 134 pounds with his 15-1 adversary matching the weight. Assuming all goes as planned, the winner is likely to face linear title-holder Dominick Cruz when he returns from a torn ACL later this year.
Fans can catch UFC on Fuel 7 tomorrow afternoon with prelims on Facebook firing up at 12:00 PM EST and main card clashes airing on Fuel TV three hours later.
