Fighters are weighed in and we're set for some Sunday AM MMA ... because the UFC don't give a Rotterdam about Mother's Day, apparently. 

Heh.

Anyways, prelims kick off on UFC Fight Pass at 1030am ET followed by the rest of the business on FS1 at noon. 

Enjoy!

Reem's weighed in 8lbs less than he did his last fight ... maybe he's slowly going back to pre-hosrmeat-reem.

EDIT:: My bad, read the odds as the weight ... still Ubereem :)

That fight is such a coin toss for me. Struve and Bigfoot both have all sorts of issues and either will probably get dropped pretty fast if they get hit with a hard shot. It comes down to whether Struve's low fight IQ or Bigfoot's amazing slowness and tentativeness is the bigger liability.

I had Edwards by decision, Waters is much tougher than he is skilled. Wish him the best because he's probably following Willie Gates to the unemployment line.
