UFC on Fuel TV 7: Barao vs. McDonald Live Streaming Weigh-in Video

Sean SmithAnalyst IFebruary 15, 2013

Renan Barao's first title defense as interim UFC bantamweight champion will come against rising star Michael McDonald in the UFC on Fuel TV 7 main event.

Barao earned his belt with a win in late-notice championship bout with Urijah Faber. McDonald, meanwhile, has been out of action since picking up the biggest win of his career with a knockout of Miguel Torres.

In addition to the 135-pound title fight, UFC on Fuel TV 7 will also feature a number of bouts between up-and-coming talents in multiple divisions.

Most notably, featherweight contenders Cub Swanson and Dustin Poirier will attempt to take a big step closer to the top of the 145-pound division in a potential Fight of the Night candidate.

Also, highly touted Icelandic prospect Gunnar Nelson will attempt to further himself in the welterweight division with a victory over veteran Jorge Santiago.

Before Saturday's event, which will take place at Wembley Arena in London, England, the fighters will hit the scales on Friday at 11 a.m. ET. Video of the weigh-ins will be streamed live on the above video player. 

After the weigh-ins, stay tuned to Bleacher Report for all the latest on UFC on Fuel TV 7 and the rest of your MMA needs.
