UGC 26 – Rage weigh-in results & photos (w/ updated fight card)

Montreal – UGC 26 goes down tonight at the Metropolis.  The card’s main event will be a rematch between Ali Nestor (6-5 MMA), a Canadian boxing champion competing in MMA for the first time since 2008, and Tim ‘Mad Dog’ Skidmore (3-17), who’s suffered nine consecutive first round losses.  Nestor scored a first-round TKO against Skidmore in their original encounter at UGC 19 three years ago.

In a welterweight bout, Ontario’s Cory Macdonald (11-2), will face-off against Chris Vorano (3-7), who’ll be looking to snap a six fight loosing streak dating back to June 2009.  The fight will be Macdonald’s eighth under the UGC banner.

The card features three other MMA fights, and two boxing bouts.

The weigh-in for UGC 26 took place Thursday at the Ness Martial Arts Academy, located in the Saint-Michel district of Montreal.  Two fighters didn’t make weight, and will be fined 20% of their purse. The evening’s MMA matches will take place in a ring, under the Unified Rules of MMA (minus foot stomps).
