LAS VEGAS, NV – The Ultimate Fighting Championship 64 weigh-ins were held today at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. All the fighters made weight and all nine bouts are now official.
Both Anderson Silva and champion Rich Franklin looked calm and relaxed as they took the stage and were highly respectful.
One of the bigger question marks that people had was how Sean Sherk would handle moving down in weight to 155 pounds to challenge Kenny Florian for the vacant lightweight title. If the weigh-ins are any indication, he has handled the move quite well. Sherk looked his typical, etched self, if a bit smaller than usual, and seemed very relaxed. Florian also made weight, even though he had to take off his fight shorts to do so.
