TUF 13 Finale Weigh-In Results

LAS VEGAS – In what is always a more intimate weigh-ins affair than pay-per-view extravaganzas, all fighters made weight Friday for their fights at "The Ultimate Fighter" Season 13 Finale card at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

Main event fighters Ramsey Nijem and Tony Ferguson came in at 170 and 169 pounds, respectively. The two reached the finals of the current Season 13 of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality competition, which taped earlier this spring. The episode showing their semifinal victories aired Wednesday.

And in an important bout for the UFC's lightweight division, Clay Guida and Anthony Pettis each hit 155 pounds on the button. Pettis was the WEC's last lightweight champion and was to get a shot at the UFC title after champion Frankie Edgar's bout with Gray Maynard at UFC 125 in January. When that fight ended in a draw and a rematch was ordered, Pettis asked for Guida, who has won three straight – all by submission. Ed Herman and Tim Credeur return to the UFC following absences of nearly two years each due to injuries and illnesses. Herman, a TUF 3 cast member, has not fought since a UFC 102 loss in August 2009 to Aaron Simpson, in which he suffered a serious knee injury. Credeur has been on the shelf since a loss to Nate Quarry at Fight Night 19 in September 2009. Despite several booked fights since then, a foot injury and a scare following a routine brain scan has kept him out of action. Herman weighed 186; Credeur was 185.

TUF 13 cast member Chris Cope arrived to the stage to a mixed response from the several hundred fans in attendance. This season's storylines saw him cast as one of the early villains, for lack of a better term, in the house. The trademark "Wooooo!" that he let out each morning, which set housemate Shamar Bailey off leading up to their quarterfinal fight, was on display when he took the stage. And his opponent, fellow TUF 13 contestant Chuck O'Neil, let out a playful "Wooooo!" of his own. The two smiled through their faceoff.

Down the card, in Saturday's second preliminary card fight, Scott Jorgensen, just one fight removed from his co-main event bantamweight title fight against Dominick Cruz in December, hit 135 for his fight against American Top Team product Ken Stone, who was 136.
