‘UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida’ Weigh-In Results: Dennis Hallman Almost Drops to Lightweight

The fighters for tomorrow night’s UFC 140 event just finished weighing in at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, with 23 of the 24 competitors coming in at or below their contracted limits. The sole fuck-up was Dennis Hallman, who was scheduled to make his lightweight debut against John Makdessi. Instead, he crushed the scales at 158.5, and was granted some extra time to get down to 156. And he’d better make it happen, considering that he’s already on the UFC’s bad side due to his unfortunate wardrobe choice in his last fight. Update: Hallman has been fined 20 percent of his purse for failing to make weight.

The other item worth noting is that Frank Mir weighed in 21 pounds heavier than Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for their heavyweight rematch. Three years ago, their size difference was only five pounds. The full list of “Jones vs. Machida” weigh-in results is after the jump.

The 3rd item worth noting: We saw Mitch Clarke's junk and ginger bush. Way to lower the towel, guys!

Big Nog did not look in good shape. He looked soft and his love handles may be bigger than mine now.

Hallman just wanted a reason to get nekkid again.
