The UFC 134 weigh-ins went down on Friday in Brazil with both champion Anderson Silva and challenger Yushin Okami hitting the mark to make their title fight official.
Okami came in at a slim 183 pounds, a full 2 pounds under the allowance, and promised to leave a hostile Brazil crowd disappointed when he walks out with the middleweight title.
“I’m going to do my best, and I’m going to take home the belt,” Okami said. “Don’t miss it, I’m going to be here with my all, I’m going to win.”
Anderson Silva will be looking to add onto his UFC record of wins and title defenses when he steps into the cage on Saturday night in his home country of Brazil. Walking out with his sons to the weigh-in stage, Silva predicted it will be “Brazil vs. the World” at UFC 134.
“I hope everyone comes here and watches this great event tomorrow night cause it’s Brazil versus the rest of the world,” Silva stated.
The rest of the weigh ins went down without an issue, but the Brazilians definitely felt the love from the crowd while their opponents probably felt more boos than in any weigh in before.
