August 28, 2010 by staff
Ufc 118 Weigh In, The official weigh-ins for UFC 118 began at 4:00 pm EDT today and as usual was largely propaganda to promote interest in the fight tomorrow night. Trust me, the interest is already there!
The first opinion was Amilcar Alves. It was one of over 172 pounds, so he took off his shorts and managed to hit 171.
His rival Mike Pierce weighed in the next. He stripped to his underwear right and weighed 171.
Next was Greg Soto, who hit 170 exactly. His opponent Nick Osipczak came later and stripped of her underwear and weighed 171. However seemed very skeletal!
John Salter came to the side and hit the scales at 185. His opponent Dan Miller came out next and had to remove the jeans, shoes, socks, shirt and hat before he weighed 185 as well.
Nick Lentz came to the side, and weighed 155 pounds. Andre Winner struck the balance to the side and weighed 154 pounds.
Gabe Godzilla Ruediger following weighed at 155 pounds, Joe Lauzon and his opponent weighed in at 156 pounds.
Mario Miranda went to the next, intelligently using flip-flops, and weighed 185. Demian Maia came later and weighed 185 pounds.
Marcus Davis weighed in at 170 pounds next, and welterweight opponent Nate Diaz weighed 171.
Gray “The Bully” Maynard came following a large skeleton and weighed 156. Kenny Florian looked even more skeletal and weighed 156 too. Let’s see how they look skeletal tomorrow night!
For the main event, James Toney was stripped and weighed first and weighed 237 pounds. His opponent, Randy “The Natural” Couture resembled in shape and weighed 220 pounds with his jeans. Toney is a natural fighter and said he hoped that we present to MMA.
To coincide with the title main event, BJ Penn first weighed at 154 pounds, and his opponent, the UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar weighed 154. Both boys looked very fit and not skeletal. BJ said it was not him, it was UFC Dana bring to Boston. Frankie was also happy to be in Boston.
There was a much drama at the weigh in this time; we hope that the event itself is more exciting!
