Video: ‘UFC on FOX’ Weigh-Ins & Results

(Video: YouTube/UFC)

Last night’s weigh-ins went off without a hitch. Every man made weight on the first go, and other than a few fighters finding out for certain if their opponents do indeed have stank breff, there were no real notable exchanges between tonight’s combatants.

A quick question before we get to the scales: when did the CSAC become the weigh-in Nazis?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad they made Clay Harvison take off that stupid Mickey Mouse hat, but when Nevada allows Roy Nelson to weigh-in looking like the Michelin Man it seems strange that California freaks out about a bracelet or a ring. And all of that “Stand here! Face forward!” drill sergeant nonsense stopped the second “Cigano” hit the stage; it’s clear that big boy in the blazer prefers bossing around people half his size.

Now, onto the results.  (via MMAFighting.com)

Live on FOX (9 p.m. ET)

Cain Velasquez (249) vs. Junior dos Santos (239)

Live on Facebook and FoxSports.com (4:45 p.m. ET)

Clay Guida (156) vs. Ben Henderson (156)
Pablo Garza (145) vs. Dustin Poirier (146)
Cub Swanson (145) vs. Ricardo Lamas (145)
DaMarques Johnson (171) vs. Clay Harvison (169)
Norifumi Yamamoto (135) vs. Darren Uyenoyama (135)
Mackens Semerzier (146) vs. Robert Peralta (145)
Alex Caceras (136) vs. Cole Escovedo (134)
Mike Pierce (171) vs. Paul Bradley (171)
Aaron Rosa (204) vs. Matt Lucas (203)

A lot of folks on Twitter expressed concern about Cain’s weight–he came in at 5-9 lbs heavier than he has in his previous UFC bouts. Is that, coupled with vague references to a Velasquez injury, enough to make you plunk down some coin on Dos Santos?

Most boring weigh-ins ever? I hope Dana realizes that this was the wrong fight to show on his Fox debut.

roy nelson should hire aaron rosa's nutritionist.
Is it just me or did Paul Bradley go from HIV to PED faster than the eye can see?

Man, Rosa looks like a completely different fighter than he did in his UFC debut. Why the hell was he fighting at heavyweight?

Gawd, I can't wait for vuh-lass-qwez to go to sleep. Junior is the present and future of the HW division. I got Junior by mid 2nd round KO.

I blame the extra pounds on the bean burrito he ate just before weigh-ins.
