More than three thousand fans flocked to the Mandalay Bay Arena to witness former UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion, Randy ‘The Natural’ Couture, and current UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion, Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell, step on the scales to weigh-in for Saturday night’s UFC 57.

Every fighter made weight and the card is official. The fireworks of the weigh-ins came from Joe Riggs who started talking smack to Nick Diaz before, during, and after weighing in. UFC president, Dana White, had to step between the two welterweights during their intense stare down.

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Frank Mir, tipped the scales at 257 for his return to the UFC bout against Marcio ‘Pe De Pano’ Cruz. Mike Whitehead made weight for his bout against Keith Jardine, but only after having to strip down to his birthday suit. Elvis Sinosic stepped on the scales with bright red hair, but looking to be in excellent shape for his fight with Alessio Sakara.
