On Friday, May 23, the UFC will host the weigh-ins for UFC 173: Barao vs. Dillashaw which takes place Saturday, May 24, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

In the night’s main event, the promotion’s bantamweight title will be on the line as champion Renan Barao defends his title against T.J. Dillashaw. The Brazilian Barao rides a gaudy 33-fight unbeaten streak that dates back to 2005. In February, the Nova Uniao product dispatched of Urijah Faber at UFC 169. Dillashaw, meanwhile, has gone 5-2 inside the Octagon. The Team Alpha Male fighter was the runner-up on The Ultimate Fighter 14 and most recently edged Mike Easton at UFC Fight Night 35 in January.

Also on the main card, unbeaten wrestling stalwart Daniel Cormier looks to move one step closer to a light heavyweight title shot when he battles former Strikeforce and Pride champion Dan Henderson. Cormier starched Patrick Cummins in his 205-pound debut in February, while Henderson moved back into title talk in March with a TKO of former champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

Rounding out the pay-per-view card will be welterweights Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger, bantamweights Takeya Mizugaki and Francisco Rivera, and lightweights James Krause and Jamie Varner.

The 12-fight card kicks off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET with three fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional bouts follow on Fox Sports 1 on at 8 p.m. ET, with the main card beginning at 10 p.m. ET.

The fighters hit the scales at 7 p.m. ET. A video feed (courtesy of the UFC) appears above, while the results appear below.
