UFC FN 54 Weigh-In Results: Rory MacDonald and Tarec Saffiedine Cleared for Main Event

Tarec Saffiedine

UFC Fight Night 54 is proceeding with the 12 fights that were scheduled for the card, as all 24 competitors made weight this afternoon in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Saturday’s card will feature a notable welterweight scrap between the #2 ranked Rory MacDonald, and the #9 placed Tarec Saffiedine. Both men came in at 170 pounds for the five round fight.

After the two weighed in, they shared an intense, yet incident free face off.

MacDonald (17-2) is coming off a one sided, decision win over Tyron Woodley in June, and could lock up a title shot with a win on Saturday.

Saffiedine (15-3), meanwhile, hasn’t fought since January when he decisioned Hyun Gyu Lim. A win for the former Strikeforce champ would certainly move him up the ranks.
