On Friday, Aug. 22, the UFC will host the weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night 49: Henderson vs. dos Anjos which takes place Saturday, Aug. 23 from the BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla.
The night’s main event will feature former WEC and UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson against hard-charging Brazilian Rafael dos Anjos. Henderson lost his 155-pound strap last August to current champion Anthony Pettis but has bounced back to edge Josh Thomson on the scorecards, and most recently, submit Rustam Khabilov in June. Dos Anjos was also in action in June, stopping Jason High via second-round TKO. The win was the Brazilian’s sixth in his last seven Octagon appearances.
In the co-main event, welterweights Jordan Mein and Mike Pyle will lock horns. Mein was originally tabbed to face Brandon Thatch, while Pyle was slated to face Demian Maia, but injuries derailed both of those match-ups. As a result, Canada’s Mein will face the crafty submission fighter Pyle.
The 11-fight card kicks off Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET with a lone bout streaming live on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional bouts follow on Fox Sports 2 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card beginning at 10 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1.
The fighters will hit the scales at 5 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
