The Ultimate Fighting Championship will put on its final event of 2020 on Saturday, and the weigh-ins went on without issue.
Hopefully, UFC Fight Night 183 will end the year on a high note. The card is main evented by a welterweight bout between former title challenger Stephen Thompson and a surging Geoff Neal. After the weigh-ins, the 12-fight card is now official as everyone made weight. Additionally, Dalcha Lungiambula weighed in at 185.5 pounds as a potential alternate.
“Wonderboy” rebounded from a surprising two-fight skid with a thrilling decision over Vicente Luque in his last appearance. It’s been a year since Thompson (15-4-1) last fought, and he’ll look to re-establish himself as a contender. At 37, it appears to be do-or-die if the South Carolina native wants to win gold inside the Octagon. Thompson looked prepared on the scales, and didn't need the one-pound allowance as he weighed 170 pounds.
Riding an impressive seven-fight win streak is Neal (13-2). Living up to his “Handz of Steel” moniker, Neal has knocked out three of his five UFC opponents including Mike Perry and Niko Price. He’ll look to stay perfect inside the Octagon in his first main event. Neal had no issue making weight, and officially came in at 171 pounds.
UFC Fight Night 183 will stream in its entirety on ESPN+. The prelims begin at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT, while the six-fight main card starts at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
