The Ultimate Fighting Championship touches down in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, for its latest card, and it is now official after the weigh-ins.
Editor's note: The article has been updated at 2:15 p.m. ET on 2/14/20 to reflect additional information about Ray Borg.
Headlining the ESPN+ event is a light heavyweight bout with potential title ramifications as Corey Anderson will look to earn a title shot at the expense of Jan Blachowicz. Anderson (13-4) is on an impressive four-fight winning streak after being knocked out in back-to-back bouts to Jimi Manuwa and Ovince St. Preux. Prior to knocking out Johnny Walker, he won decisions over Patrick Cummins, Ilir Latifi and Glover Teixeira. "Overtime" looked prepared on the scales, and came in at 205 pounds.
Blachowicz (25-8) had his own four-fight winning streak snapped by Thiago Santos early last year. However, the Polish fighter has rebounded by knocking out Luke Rockhold and winning a split decision over Ronaldo Souza. He'll look to continue his winning ways against Anderson, and he made weight at the light heavyweight limit of 206 pounds.
One fighter missed weight: Ray Borg (128)*, who hit the scales two pounds above the flyweight limit. As he did not make the limit after a one-hour allowance, it is the fourth time in his UFC career that he has come in heavy for a bout. Borg has been fined 30 percent of his purse.
The UFC Fight Night 167 preliminary card is set to begin airing at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT on ESPN+. The six-fight main card will start at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
