Anthony Johnson vs. Vitor Belfort is officially on for tonight’s UFC 142 co-main event after Johnson weighed in at 204.2 pounds earlier today, just under the 205 pound requirement made after he missed the middleweight limit by 11 pounds on Friday.
Belfort will collect 20% of Johnson’s salary for agreeing to fight at a catchweight. Johnson is expected to weigh as much as 220 pounds by fight time, while Belfort will be about 205 pounds, according to MMAFighting.
UFC 142 is headlined by UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes.
