(Urijah Faber celebrates defeating Brian Bowles during a UFC Bantamweight bout at the HP Pavillion)

The stacked UFC on FOX 9 card has an official weigh-in time, and will be open to the public. The corresponding press conference for the same event will also be open to the general public.

Among the fights on the card is a flyweight championship rematch featuring Demetrious Johnson (18-2-1), who looks to defend his title against Joseph Benazvidez (19-3)

The co-main event will feature a potential changing of the guards as Urijah Faber (29-6) takes on talented young-gun Michael McDonald (16-2) in a bout that could dictate both of their careers.

The open workouts will be closed to the public but with the weigh-ins and press conference open to the public, fans will surely flock to this pre-fight event to soak in the hype for an exciting card.

Fans can attend the press conference at 3:30 p.m. ET/12:30 p.m. PT when the doors open with a 4:00 p.m. ET/1 :00 p.m. PT start time. The press conference takes place at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. Dana White, Johnson, Benavidez, Faber, McDonald, Carlos Condit, Matt Brown, Nik Lentz and Chad Mendes will all be on the dais to promote the event.

The weigh-ins will open their doors at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT. These are also open to the general public.
