Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

UFC 107 Weigh-In Becomes Adult-Themed Entertainment

(‘Kongo, I don’t respect your ground game and don’t particularly like you as a person, so you know I have no reason to lie to you when I say this, but your ass is the most magnificent thing I’ve ever encountered.’ Photo courtesy of Combat Lifestyle’s UFC 107 weigh-in set.)

Who knows what kind of wacky scales they use in Memphis, but Natasha Wicks isn’t complaining because the end result was six different fighters stripping down to their birthday suits just to make weight.  Diego Sanchez initially weighed in at 156, which would have been just fine if he weren’t fighting for the 155-pound title.  So he did what several others who came before him did and took off his skivvies to make weight.  When he did, he clocked in at 154.5 pounds.  As Tennessee State Athletic Commission executive director/master of basic reasoning skills Tim Mullen explained: "Every fighter that was taking his shorts off was losing about 1.5 pounds, that must be what those things weigh."

With the help of a little nudity every fighter made the agreed upon weight, although the Alan Belcher-Wilson Gouveia bout was changed to a catchweight of 195 pounds before the weigh-in.  Full results are after the jump.

B.J. Penn (155) vs. Diego Sanchez (154.5)
Frank Mir (264.5) vs. Cheick Kongo (239)
Kenny Florian (156) vs. Clay Guida (156)
Paul Buentello (255) vs. Stefan Struve (247)
Jon Fitch (171) vs. Mike Pierce (171)
Alan Belcher (195) vs. Wilson Gouveia (193)
Matt Wiman (156) vs. Shane Nelson (156)
Johny Hendricks (171) vs. Ricardo Funch (171)
Rousimar Palhares (186) vs. Lucio Linhares (185)
DaMarques Johnson (171) vs. Edgar Garcia (171)
Kevin Burns (171) vs. T.J. Grant (171)

Jesus Frank; 264? point 5? Are you taking advice from big country on your new diet? Methinks Mir may be taking this one lightly. Best finish this one quick before you screw up Ben's conservatively placed sawbuck.

Everytime a fighter has to strip down at the scales, the octagon girls should have to do the same, better entertainment value....speaking of which Stempunk, how did Fitch v. Pierce beat out The talent(hometown boy, fight of the night at UFC 100!) vs. Wilson Gouveia? Fitch may finish Pierce(i'm hoping too), Guida ain't gonna finish his though.

Mir "I can't get no respect"

White "I'm pumped for this one, I think it's gonna be awesome man, we've had some pretty big rivalries in the UFC, but this one, blah blah blah, Lesnar may be out for a year and a half"

Wicks "O those days.....I need a rejuvination down there cause of guys like Cheick"

Mir just finished bouncing off a quarter - hence the extended hand

You make it sound as if he disgraced the sport UFC fan, stop being such an over-sensitive little bitch boy

But its funny seeing Buffer in anything but suit, he looks like a tool wearing those typical MMA shirts at his age

what Kongo did was stupid as hell. I was gonna root for him, but after making Mir-the biggest asshole inMMA, look good, I gotta go with Mir. And I agree with provrorsbarn, I hope Mir chokes "CHEEK" out.
If I had been Dana I woulda told him to stop being a damn child and turn around like a normal human.

What the fuck is up with Kongo and his fake glasses?

Fuckin' poser.

Mir checks his hand for the cosmo notes he wrote down on how to pick up guys. Kongo plays hard to get, a move he learned from Maxim.

@ King_KP

Alan Belcher and Wilson Gouveia has been changed to a 195-pound catchweight bout.

The change was made Friday afternoon and approved by UFC officials.

Gouveia asked for a 190-pound catchweight limit, but Belcher gave a counter-offer of 195 pounds, stating he was already at 195 pounds and didn't see the use in cutting extra weight.

Frank: Hmm I wonder if its true about black men?

Kongo: Bruce you like what you see?

Buffer: I do I do I soooo Do.

White: Oh shit you got to be kidding me. This is the meaning of the United Fag Convention.

Wicks: Holy beejesus I think there is a snake in there.

Why does Bruce Buffer always look SO excited to be at the weigh-ins. The expression is just a little too ecstatic for my liking."

D:Really does have no ground game. Unless he shows us some new tricks tomorrow he could end up being accused of Killing Harrison Ford's wife."

-ROFL- it was the man with one arm!
ghostboner- December 11, 2009 at 3:41 pm
Kind of feel bad for Kongo, kind of hope he ko's mir. I mean

A:He really does have a magnificent ass.

B:We will see Mir vs Chestner 3 no matter who Mir loses to. Too much money in that one for Dana to turn down. And

C:He seems like a really nice guy. But unfortunately...

D:Really does have no ground game. Unless he shows us some new tricks tomorrow he could end up being accused of Killing Harrison Ford's wife.
King_KP- December 11, 2009 at 3:35 pm
Any idea on why their is a catchweight in the Belcher / Gouveia fight, these guys have both made 185 before pretty easily, not to mention Gouveia only weighed in at 193.
Eduardo_Graca- December 11, 2009 at 3:27 pm
you all know in afrofrench cultures turning your ass on a foe means 'this is what your mother keeps rubbin my face with', the very ultimate offense an apeboxing tribal guy can take. Then they will use their incredibly lengthy limbs to look for clinches and eventual take downs only to be exposed by any rival with ANY kind of grappling skills instead of working on takedown deffense and looking to stick and move with the advantage of considerable reach using straights punches, low, body and high kicks, knees...but you just cant figure these exotic apeboxing dudes out.
And yes, Mr. Kongo IS pissed.

is it just me or does bruce buffer look like a fuckin weirdo in anything but a tux?

Excited for the fights though, I hope they're good because we don't have much to look forward too after this.

Penn/Mir/Guida/Struve/Fitch. Man would I ever like to see the Fitch and Guida fights not go to decision, respectively. Come on boys, put someone away!
KidDinomite- December 11, 2009 at 3:04 pm
Looks like Bobby Lashley has signed with Strikeforce.....
Daddy_jeffy- December 11, 2009 at 3:04 pm
Cheick Kongo was 26 lbs below the weight limit, and Frank Mir still asked him to remove his drawers.
provrorsbarn- December 11, 2009 at 3:02 pm
Damn Frank is huge now.....and entertaining with the "Im gonna choke this bitch" behind kongos back
