“UFC on Versus 5″ Weigh-Ins: Hardy’s Hands Slightly Too Heavy

Two dudes known for throwing bombs, and the only guy trying to look tough is the promoter in the background. (Pic: @danawhite)

Tomorrow night Dan Hardy could be fighting for his spot in the UFC, but he came up just a little short in his battle with the scales. Ditching the shorts brought him within a half pound of the 171lb Welterweight limit, but additional time will be needed to shed the excess weight. A quick rinse should take at least a few ounces of mousse out of his mohawk. (Update- the rinse worked! Hardy made weight).

Ben Henderson was the only other fighter to make use of the towel, though he made weight without the need for additional time. The only real heat from the event surfaced when Cole Miller and T.J. O’brien got to jawing during their tense staredown. Based solely on the weigh-ins, I’m going to make a bold prediction for the Jason Reinhardt-Edwin Figueroa bout: Reinhardt will piss hot for crystal meth.

I wonder if Reinhardt talks like "bling bling" from bum fights.

Meh, he looks the same to me.

That call has you pretty worked up, doesn't it? Comments carried over to a whole different story. Just raggin' on ya, brah. But your comment is pretty accurate.

Anyone notice that DW looks like he's cut some weight? For a while there it looked like he was packing in on to make a run at the HW title. Looks like MW is within striking distance now.

Morally a good call.
Technically a bad call.
If the fighter doesn't want to tap out and and want the fight to finish with her arm broken, let her. Hey, at least we'll be spared the tantrum after the fight, eh?

Cole Miller seems to be confused, thinks he is the 3rd Diaz brother. Hoping Cerrone and miller win tonight so we can see them throw down.

Its too bad that Reinhardt is second only to Wall-Mart in total cans crushed and will likely be submitted or TKO'ed within the first round.

I thought Reinhardt was great in Winter's Bone.
