Two title bouts form the foundation of the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s annual Memorial Day weekend extravaganza.

Anthony Johnson checked in at 204.5 pounds ahead of his five-round clash with Daniel Cormier (205) for the vacant light heavyweight crown in the UFC 187 main event on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Middleweight champion Chris Weidman (185) and challenger Vitor Belfort (184) also met the contracted weight requirements for their co-headliner at Friday’s official weigh-in.

UFC 187 “Johnson vs. Cormier” -- which airs live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT -- will also feature a lightweight scrap pairing Jackson-Wink MMA rep Donald Cerrone (156) with John Makdessi (155.5), a heavyweight tilt pitting Glendale Fight Club’s Travis Browne (236) against Andrei Arlovski (241) and a flyweight affair matching Team Alpha Male export Joseph Benavidez (125.5) with John Moraga (126).
