The Ultimate Fighting Championship is heading back to Nashville, Tenn. with a solid card full of significant contender matchups, and is headlined by a welterweight clash of Stephen Thompson vs. Anthony Pettis.

Thompson hit the scales at 170.5 pounds, as he prepares to face former UFC and World Extreme Cagefighting lightweight kingpin Pettis (171) in the UFC Fight Night 148 main event this Saturday at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. Co-headlining the card will be a heavyweight scrap between Curtis Blaydes (262) and the surging Justin Willis (266), and all four made weight easily and were in good spirits at Friday's official weigh-ins.

UFC Fight Night 148 "Thompson vs. Pettis," which airs live on ESPN+ on Saturday, March 23 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, also features a lightweight matchup between John Makdessi (154) and Jesus Pinedo (155.5). A pair of flyweight contenders will square off, as Jussier da Silva (126) meets the undefeated Deiveson Figueiredo (135.5). At featherweight, Luis Pena (*148.5) faces Steven Peterson (146). Rounding out the main card will be a women's flyweight battle between the unbeaten Maycee Barber (126) and Roufusport product J.J. Aldrich (125).

One fighter did miss weight: Luis Pena (*148.5), who came in 2.5 pounds over the featherweight limit and has been fined 30 percent of his purse.
