On Friday, Feb. 26, the UFC will host the weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night 84: Silva vs. Bisping which takes place Saturday, Feb. 27, from the O2 Arena in London.

In the night’s main event, former middleweight champion Anderson Silva returns to action against England’s own Michael Bisping. Silva has been out of action since his UFC 183 win over Nick Diaz was overturned due to a failed drug test. Prior to that, the Brazilian suffered back-to-back title defeats to Chris Weidman, ending his lengthy championship reign. The 40-year-old’s last official win came against Stephan Bonnar in 2012.

Bisping, meanwhile, has earned two straight decision wins over former title challenger Thales Leites and fellow TUF alum C.B. Dolloway. The 36-year-old has never tasted defeat on British soil and will look to get himself into title contention with a win over the former titleholder.

The 13-fight event kicks off Saturday with nine preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 12:45 p.m. ET. The four-fight main card takes place at 4 p.m. ET, also on UFC Fight Pass.

The fighters will hit the scales at 11 a.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
