Video: UFC On FOX: Velasquez Vs. Dos Santos Weigh-In Highlight

Tomorrow night is a historic night for mixed martial arts, not only because the UFC is making it’s much-ballyhooed network debut, but also because MMA fans will witness what should be one of the best heavyweight title fights of all time.

UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will return from over a year hiatus spent mending an injured shoulder to take on dos Santos, a hungry challenger from Brazil with hands as heavy as his goals are high: he’s coming to upset Velasquez in his backyard and take the heavyweight championship home to Brazil.

The two men hit the scales today and both of them weighed within the heavyweight limits, Velasquez coming in at 249lbs. and dos Santos at 239lbs.

A native Californian who’s made his home in San Jose, Velasquez was heavily supported by the crowd; he told his fans that he’s excited to fight in front of a hometown crowd and promised to deliver a show.

You can check out a highlight from the weigh-ins below. UFC on Fox: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos takes place tomorrow night from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. FightLine will be back beginning around 4:45pm ET with live, ongoing coverage of the event, starting with the nine-fight preliminary card.
