In front of a packed house outside of the Honda Center, the fighters involved in UFC 121 weighed in with everyone making weight with no issues including the heavyweight title participants Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez.
With the crowd on his side and Mexican flags being waved, Cain Velasquez stayed focused and ready on the object at hand.
“I feel great,” Velasquez said. “Everybody expect a war.”
The champion Brock Lesnar got a few more boos from the California crowd, but looked as intense as ever, and when the stare down with Velasquez was finished, there was no shaking hands. Just a look like a fight was about to go down Saturday night.
“Brock Lesnar getting his hand raised,” the champion said when asked how he sees the fight going. “That’s exactly how it’s going to go.”
Co-main event fighter Jake Shields made it back to welterweight with seemingly no issues weighing in at 170 ½ lbs, with a smile on his face excited to make his UFC debut. Former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz also made weight for his fight against Matt Hamill looking shredded while also sporting a “Dana is my hero” t-shirt.
