UFC 120: Bisping vs. Akiyama is officially a go for Saturday night in London as all of the fighters weighed in with no problems.
Main event fighters Michael Bipsing and Yoshihiro Akiyama both weighed in at 185 pounds. The Brit wasted no time getting right in his opponent’s face when they stared down. For his part, Akiyama just smiled back at Bisping as the two went forehead to forehead, but did shake hands afterwards.
The scene wasn’t nearly as friendly between co-main event fighters Dan Hardy and Carlos Condit, who also bumped into each other after making weight. Hardy bounced around in his normal pre-fight manner as Condit stared him down with an icy glare. The former WEC champion never broke his stare with Hardy even after UFC president Dana White separated the two welterweights and Hardy waved him away.
