On Friday, Dec. 18, the UFC will host the weigh-ins for UFC on Fox 17: Dos Anjos vs. Cerrone 2 which takes place Saturday, Dec. 19, from the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla.

In the night’s main event, lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos will look to make the first defense of his 155-pound title when he rematches Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. The Brazilian dos Anjos captured the belt with a dominant win over Anthony Pettis at UFC 185 in March. He enters the contest riding a four-fight winning streak. Cerrone, meanwhile, will be out for revenge as he aims to avenge a closely contested 2013 decision loss to the champion. Since that defeat, the 32-year-old has reeled off eight straight wins, including five finishes.

The 13-fight event kicks off Saturday with three preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 3:30 p.m. ET. Six additional preliminary card bouts air live on Fox Sports 1 at 5 p.m. ET, with the four-fight main card taking place at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

The fighters will hit the scales at 4 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
