UFC 94 Weigh-In Report

(Photo courtesy of MMA Weekly.)

The MGM Grand Garden Arena was a packed house for this afternoon’s UFC 94 weigh-ins.  Every fighter made weight, some after taking full advantage of the extra pound allowance for non-title bouts.  

Akihiro Gono got the crowd’s attention when he showed up in zebra shorts and an enormous Afro wig.  As a show of good sportsmanship before the staredown he offered the Afro wig to Jon Fitch, who accepted it and put it on his own head for the photo op.

B.J. Penn clocked in at a very svelte 168 pounds, just in case you forgot this wasn’t his natural weight class, while Georges St. Pierre was an even 170.

Said GSP after the weigh-in: “I’ve never been so excited for a fight.  I’ve never wanted to win so bad.  Tomorrow night, don’t blink.  It’s going to be a great fight.”

As for Penn, he said simply: "I’m ready.  I have nothing else to say.  Let’s fight."

The most intense moment of the weigh-in occurred when Clay Guida and Nate Diaz finally came face to face.  A fired up Guida worked the crowd into a frenzy first, while Diaz came out to a chorus of boos second.  After both men made weight, Guida got right in the taller man’s face.  Diaz, naturally, continued mean-mugging Guida all the way off the stage.  Because for the Diaz brothers, it’s always personal.

Full results from the UFC 94 weigh-ins are after the jump.

Georges St. Pierre (170) vs. BJ Penn (168)
Lyoto Machida (206) vs. Thiago Silva (206)
Karo Parisyan (170) vs. Dong Hyun Kim (171)
Nate Diaz (156) vs. Clay Guida (156)
Stephan Bonnar (206) vs. Jon Jones (206)
Jon Fitch (171) vs. Akihiro Gono (171)*
Manvel Gamburyan (155) vs. Thiago Tavares (155)
Chris Wilson (170) vs. John Howard (171)
Jake O’Brien (205) vs. Christian Wellisch (206)
Matt Arroyo (171) vs. Dan Cramer (171)

* As Joe Rogan pointed out when Gono stepped on the scale: “171, with the ‘fro!”

Bloody Elbow has pictures of Jon Fitch in his afro.

I cant wait for this event to start, its going to be the first fights that ive seen live. Last night as i was walking to my room in the MGM i figured out me and Jon Fitch are staying on the same floor.

I hope Guide fucks Diaz up so bad that MMA will never have to see his stupid face again

Guida's had problems with sub's. Aurelio didn't really try any with him, but Diaz will.

Dear Lord, I just want GSP to pound BJ's face in real bad. I don't know if that will happen, but it should be a great fight either way. And I really hope Guida pounds Diaz's face in as well and then gives a Stockton hey buddy to his motionless bloodied body on the mat.

Hey Bens! Why in the world would you tell me about Fitch putting on an afro wig and not give me pictures to go with it? Seriously guys.

I want guida to win...I always want guida to win. Hopefully he can take that punk down, give him is first UFC loss, and it will spiral down for him...then we don't have to see him, just like wedon't have to see his brother.

people who like diaz are fucktards

Serious where are the pics of Fitch in the FRO! Cagepotato you're letting us down.

Diaz is a douche that wins fights, that's what pisses people off the most.
Manic- January 30, 2009 at 11:56 pm
Diaz over Guida? You guys are nuts. Guida is an absolute animal. He is going to pressure Diaz until he folds. Diaz is way to cocky and needs to be knocked down a few pegs, anyway. It may do Diaz some good to get ko'd.

Why are we even talking about Nate Diaz, we all know he can't read whatever we type
bonerjams 98- January 30, 2009 at 10:13 pm
diaz will win via forcing his member down guidas throat and thrusting at a medium pace, in doing so he will win back the hearts of all America!....and I'm sure an angel will get their wings too!
machete for hands- January 30, 2009 at 8:47 pm

I drove to and from Lathrop today for work, and I must say: the fucking realness in that entire area code is palpable. Once I hit the 209 I drove over 10 dogs and 4 squirrels before punching a 7-11 clerk after jacking all the OE 40s they had.

Kimbo's A Bitch Says: Diaz is an illetirate douche.

Irish_Fella- January 30, 2009 at 6:25 pm
Guida takes diaz in this, he won't be able for the pace.
Lyoto beat silva also,
and Goerges takes bj in the later rounds.
