Live from the South Side Ballroom at Gilley’s Dallas in Texas, all 26 fighters competing on tomorrow’s UFC 171: Hendricks vs. Lawler card are hitting the scales today starting at 5 p.m. EST. Will Diego Sanchez cartwheel his way to the stage? Will Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler have a good old fashioned dip spit-off? Only one way to find out, Nation.

* Hendricks initially weighed in at 171.5, but hit the welterweight limit when he weighed in again two hours later — which is a good thing because it would have been a total clusterfuck if he didn’t.

** Gastelum originally weighed in at 172, but made it down to 171 on his third attempt

*** Forte was given two hours to make 156 pounds, but couldn’t make it happen, and forfeited 20% of his purse to Trevino.

And here we have Nick Diaz heckling Johny Hendricks about his weight. Diaz actually offered to step in if the title fight was called off. And that’s why we love him.
