It took him a few extra tense moments, but Nate Diaz made weight for his lightweight co-main event clash with Donald Cerrone Thursday night. Diaz and Cerrone are just one of the featured bouts for tonight’s UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem pay-per-view from Las Vegas.
Diaz was over the limit on two tries during the live weigh-ins, and though Cerrone said he didn’t care about the extra pound, Diaz went ahead and dropped down to 156.
In the main event, Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem will collide for a shot at UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos in 2012. Other bouts include Jon Fitch against Johny Hendricks and Alexander Gustafsson and Vladimir Matyushenko.
