UFC Fight Night 72 Weigh-in Results: Michael Bisping, Thales Leites on Target in Scotland

By Brian Knapp Jul 17, 2015
They are predators vying for territory in the Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight division.

Michael Bisping checked in at 185 pounds ahead of his five-round scrap with Nova Uniao’s Thales Leites (185) in the UFC Fight Night 72 main event on Saturday at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland. Lightweight co-headliners Ross Pearson (155) and Evan Dunham (156) also met their mandatory thresholds at Friday’s official weigh-in.

UFC Fight Night 72 “Bisping vs. Leites” -- which airs live on Fox Sports 1 at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT -- will also feature a women’s strawweight clash matching “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 20 alum Joanne Calderwood (115) with Cortney Casey (114), a welterweight tilt pitting onetime British Association of Mixed Martial Arts champion Leon Edwards (169) against Pawel Pawlak (170) and a pair of lightweight battles, as former Cage Warriors Fighting Championship titleholder Joseph Duffy (155) meets Ivan Jorge (154) and Chute Boxe export Leonardo Mafra Texeira (155) faces Steven Ray (155).

Two hours prior, Fox Sports 1 will also carry four undercard matchups: Patrick Holohan (126) vs. Vaughan Lee (126), Ilir Latifi (206) vs. Hans Stringer (205), Mickael Lebout (155) vs. Teemu Packalen (155) and Robert Whiteford (146) vs. Paul Redmond (145).
