LOS ANGELES – Champion Ronda Rousey and No. 1 contender Cat Zingano each made weight on Friday at LA Live, making official their bout on Saturday for the UFC women's bantamweight title at Staples Center in the main event of UFC 184.
Rousey, who appeared more gaunt in the face than usual, weighed at the bantamweight limit of 135 pounds. Zingano, who weighed first, was 134 1/2.
She was asked by UFC broadcaster Joe Rogan for a comment about the fight following the weigh-in. She said simply, "Just watch," and then turned and headed to the locker room.
Rousey (10-0, 10 finishes) praised Zingano (9-0, eight finishes) as her most dangerous opponent, which she said is a good thing. As her hometown crowd cheered her, Rousey said, "I'm going to show you guys the most fantastic win ever."
Holly Holm, a former boxing champion making her UFC debut in the co-main event, weighed in at 135 1/2, the same as her opponent, Raquel Pennington.
