The Octagon touches down in Washington D.C., this Saturday for UFC on ESPN 7, and two fighters missed their marks on the scales for the event.
The main attraction sees a heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem (248) and Jairzinho Rozenstruik (250.5). Overeem is looking to continue his win streak, which currently sits at two in a row. On the flip side, Rozenstruik, currently unbeaten in MMA competition and having won all three of his Octagon appearances via knockout, is searching for a victory over one of the best strikers the heavyweight division has ever seen. In the co-headliner, unbeaten Marina Rodriguez (115.5) takes on Cynthia Calvillo (120.5)* at strawweight, although Calvillo came in well over the 116-pound limit.
UFC on ESPN 7 airs live on ESPN on Saturday, Dec. 7, with the main card kicking off at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. The event also features a heavyweight tussle between Stefan Struve (265.3) and the enigmatic Ben Rothwell (265.2). At bantamweight, Aspen Ladd (136) looks to bounce back from the first defeat of her career against Yana Kunitskaya (135.1). Yadong Song (135.2) tries to make it eight in a row as he faces "Mr. Wonderful" Cody Stamann (135.2) at bantamweight, and the main card opens with another bantamweight battle between Rob Font (135.1) and Ricky Simon (135.2).
Two fighters missed weight: Calvillo (120.5)*, who came in 4.5 pounds over the strawweight cap, and she has been fined 30 percent of her purse. Matt Sayles (148.5)** weighed in 2.5 pounds heavy at featherweight, and he has been fined 20 percent of his purse. Both fights will proceed as scheduled.
