Today the two fighters took part in their weigh in and both made weight.
On the scales both women were comfortably under the Bantamweight limit, showing that neither were really Bantamweights and in fact both have fought much of their careers at 115lbs. Despite that both looked like they had put in a lot of preparation for the bout.
At the weigh in a confident looking Juarez seemed like she was in her element, posing for the cameras. Despite being 37 she's still looking in great shape and it's obvious that she hasn't over-looked the relatively unknown Nuki, who really is a mystery for those outside of Japan.
Although the under-dog Nuki sounded confident of picking up the win here and spoke like a confident fighter who is determined to take the title home with her, and score one of the most surprising upsets of the year.
