The original venue for the first UFC was McNichol's Arena, which was demolished and replaced by the Pepsi Center.

The UFC's 25th Anniversary Show features Chan Sung Jung (aka The Korean Zombie) in the main event alongside Yair Rodriguez, who is a later successor to Frankie Edgar, who had to retire due to injury.

For various reasons, it had been more than a year since one of the two headliners entered the Octagon, but Jung did not have a problem, as he weighed 146 pounds in the first ten minutes of morning weight. It took Rodriguez a while longer to get on the scales, but he had no problems weighing at 145.5 pounds.

Although young vs. As headliner Rogridugez, fans in Denver are likely to watch the co-main event with more intensity as home-town favorite Donald Cerrone plays with former teammate "Platinum" Mike Perry.

Perry was the first fighter on the Libra on Friday weighing 170.5 pounds officially. Perry is said to have arrived at Denver at £ 195, so he calms down, so to speak. Cerrone stepped shortly afterwards at 170 pounds on the scales.

Raquel Pennington weighed only ten minutes before the clock, but without clothes, she weighed 138 pounds or two full pounds above the threshold for her bantamweight title-less fight with Germaine de Randamie. If the fight is approved, she would probably punish 20 percent of her battle money purse, which would then go to de Randamie.

Maycee Barber hit the scales 8 minutes before the end of the session, weighing 116.5 pounds or 0.5 pounds over the limit for her fight with Hannah Cifers. Barber received an extra hour to lose the excess weight.

Although she fell under the same rules as Barber, Pennington did not seem to be able to continue to lose weight and we were told at the time of publication that she would not.
