UFC 137 Weigh-In Results: Roy Nelson in Disguise, a Fat Tyson Griffin, and Nick Diaz as Himself

(Highlight video courtesy of MMAFighting.com)
It’s been a while since we brought you kids a good weigh-in video, and we’re truly sorry for that. It’s not that we don’t care, it’s just getting pretty rare that someone wears an elaborate costume to the scale, misses weight by an incredible margin, or a high-profile staredown gets personal. And if those are the criteria for a great weigh-ins, last night we hit the mother lode!

Roy Nelson‘s been toying with us all about his new, streamlined look, and last night he dangled that carrot in front of us just a bit longer. “Big Country” stepped onto the stage concealing his new figure like the boys at Mercedes test driving a prototype in public. Even with the excess padding (and to be fair, we are just assuming that wasn’t his real physique), Nelson weighed only 252 lbs.

Despite dispensing nutritional advice earlier in the week, Tyson Griffin showed up three pounds over the allowance yesterday afternoon. Unable to cut the extra weight, he’ll forfeit 25% of his purse and his bout with Bart Palaszewski will go down at a catch weight of 148 lbs. Check out Rogan’s reaction when he’s on the scale, and we’ll let the looks of disappointment and anger from everyone else tell the rest of the tale.

Nick Diaz has spoken at length about BJ Penn being a friend, going so far as to say that tonight’s bout isn’t “a normal fight for me, it’s more of a sporting competition this time around. I hope nobody’s too disappointed if it doesn’t go the same as it always does.” Well, you can take the fighter out of Stockton (barely), but you can’t take the Stockton out of the fighter. As soon as the two main-eventers came head to head, this fight became as personal as any for the former Strikeforce champion. Hold up– is that Diaz taking a swing at Penn as the two are separated?!? Sometimes these things happen at weigh-ins.

Chandella looked like there was a tsunami in her hotpants when Kongo started stripping.
At the same point Joe looked scared.

Flaneritz HAS to be trolling with an opinion like that.

BJ PENN / NICK DIAZ staredown and breakup by Dana White was 100% staged. Get those ratings up little piggies.

Guerriere, cducti

Had GSP not got injured less then 2 weeks ago, this card would have been pretty decent. Sometimes this stuff happens, regardless its still a pretty decent card considering .. If you dont like it "Flaneritz" .. dont buy it. Bitching about it isnt gonna help... lol @ "Flaneritz" what a gay ass name.

LOL at 2:46 Joe seems really into Nick

The UFC should be paying us to watch this trashy card. Besides the main fight this looks like a local fight card trying to go big. The Spike fights are more interesting than the main card. With that being said; I hope Meathead lays Kongo to rest so MMA Jay-T can stop posting videos about him. If your reading this Jay-T, please stop picking fighters based on who you would like to ravage you at home.
