The Ultimate Fighting Championship is back in Boston this Friday for UFC on ESPN 6, and two fighters have missed weight.
In the main event, former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman (204) moves up to light heavyweight to take on undefeated Dominick Reyes (203). Weidman lost his last fight to Ronaldo Souza by knockout, while "The Devastator" won recently by split decision over Volkan Oezdemir. The co-main attraction sees the rematch of UFC Mexico City's main event as Jeremy Stephens (145.5) collides with Yair Rodriguez (145).
UFC on ESPN 6 airs on ESPN2 with the main card starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, and also features a heavyweight tilt between Greg Hardy (264.5) and Ben Sosoli (164). At lightweight, Joe Lauzon (153) makes his return to his home state against promotional newcomer Jonathan Pearce (154.5). In the lone women's bout on the main card, Maycee Barber (126) looks to remain unbeaten as she takes on Gillian Robertson (126) at flyweight. Opening up the main card is a middleweight scrap between Deron Winn (188.5)* and Darren Stewart (185).
Two fighters missed their respective marks: Winn (188.5)*, who came in 2.5 pounds over the middleweight limit, and Manny Bermudez (148)**, who missed featherweight by two pounds. Both men have elected to stop cutting weight, and they have each been fined 20 percent of their purses.
