The weigh-ins for UFC 184 are complete, with both Ronda Rousey and Cat Zingano on weight — and ready to go for tomorrow’s main event.
In a brief interview, Rousey described Zingano as her best opponent. Asked how she felt about the fight, Zingano would only say: “watch this.”
Rousey is one of MMA’s biggest stars, and also a Southern California native, and will likely enjoy the support of the Los Angeles crowd. Zingano, of Colorado, was scheduled to face Rousey back in 2013, but injuries and personal tragedy delayed the bout. Both fighters are undefeated, at 10-0 and 9-0 respectively.
Only one fighter did not make weight — Mark Munoz, who weighed in at 187.5. Munoz needed to strip fully to come that close — and even then, he began to flex a double bicep pose, which he abandoned as he seemed to tire. Another welterweight, Jake Ellenberger, also needed to strip to make weight — but was successful.
Munoz will have two hours to cut the last 1.5 pounds.
