(Oh yeah, they’ll be plenty of this. And we definitely don’t mean the “thoughts” part.) 

With a lineup that would challenge any UFC pay-per-view event in recent memory, UFC on FOX 5: Henderson vs. Diaz will come storming into your living rooms tomorrow night at 8 p.m. EST. You know what that means for tonight — some dudes are going to mean mug and possibly shove some other dudes that hopefully weigh-in at the same weight as the first dudes. Confused? Then join us after the jump and we’ll sort this all out for you, and make sure to swing by tomorrow at 8 p.m. to catch our liveblog of all the action!

Main Card (FOX)
Benson Henderson (154.6) vs. Nate Diaz**(155.6)
Maurício Rua (205) vs. Alexander Gustafsson (205.4)
B.J. Penn (168.2) (Author’s note: ?!) vs. Rory MacDonald (170.2)
Mike Swick (170) vs. Matt Brown (170.2)

Preliminary Card (FX)
Jeremy Stephens (155.8) vs. Yves Edwards (155)
Raphael Assuncao***(136.4) vs. Mike Easton (135)
Nam Phan (145.4) vs. Dennis Siver (146)
Ramsey Nijem (155.4) vs. Joe Proctor (154.6)
Daron Cruickshank (155) vs. Henry Martinez* (158.8)

Preliminary Card (Facebook)
Scott Jorgensen (135.2) vs. John Albert (136)
Abel Trujillo (155.4) vs. Marcus LeVesseur (155.4)

*Martinez was given two hours to make 156. He decided not to and forfeited 20% of his purse.

**Diaz has to lose .6. On his second attempt, he reached 155.2, but still has two hours to drop the additional weight. Diaz hit the mark on his third try. Whew.

***Assuncao made weight on his second attempt.

A "ripped" BJ and a Diaz doing his best impression of a 12 year old trying to scare someone. All is good with world.

Relax everybody. Nathan made weight. All is well in the universe. I still blame Viva even for this close call though. :$

Sorry guys, my internet crapped out at the absolute worst time. The current results are up. Apparently Nate still has some time to cut off .2.

Nate is 2 or .2 overweight? Still at work, no volume.

That is correct Maine Blazer. He weighed in a second time and is still .2 over. . fucking 2 :(

Nate Diaz is overweight, isn't he? Championship fights don't have the one pound allowance...

I thought the BJ Penn & Shogun were supposed to be in shape. They both looked as soft as ever.
