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!

Nelson looked amazing, crazy good BJJ. But how good does Maia look after that?

Bigfoot has hair. Did not know that was possible.

Edit: Must be on the same hair roids as Elias Theodorou.

@mikeyg:
I'm not suggesting at 140 division, just interesting catchweight fights for Cyborg in the UFC. If she wants to fight at 145 than she can still defend her title with Invicta. But if she doesn't want to drop the weight to 135 (she's the same size as Holm) then she needs to fight lady's that are not circling the BW title.

De Randamie is great striker but not quite near a BW UFC title shot yet. She's actually taller than Cyborg, and probably more technical on the feet. Cyborg would have a tough time bullying De Randamie.

Struve has had so many setbacks and mistakes it can be tough cheering for him but I still like him.

Rooting for Arlovski, but I'd be fine with a Reemllotine.

Damn, surprised Reem didn't break his toes on Arlovski's jaw with that front kick

Could've let that one continue a little imo. 2 veterans and Andre was trying to defend himself

One of my better cards in a while. I was really slumping there for a bit.

Welp, he went for the KO again. Still no finish like the Reemllotine.

Impressive win by Reem. Arlovski seemed done ever since the body kick in the 1st. He literally flopped on his back after Reem lost contact on the takedown attempt. Completely gave that round away when he still had a very good chance to wn it.

Cain's need an emphatic win over Browne to take the title shot away from Reem.
