All the fighters slated to compete in tomorrow night’s historic UFC 100 event tipped the scales today inside Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Every contestant hit their required weights, paving the way for two 5Round title affairs.
Tomorrow night’s extravaganza will be co-headlined by UFC welterweight king Georges St-Pierre’s title defense against the explosive Thiago Alves. Both looked absolutely chiseled at today’s weigh-ins, each hitting 170 pounds dead-smack on the nose.
On any other card those studs would be the night’s finale, however the big boys steal this monumental show as the two heavyweight title holders look to unify the strap. Interim champ holder Frank Mir looked considerably smaller than champion Brock Lesnar, but then again, who doesn’t?
Mir weighed in at 245 pounds, while his nemesis once again hit the absolute max of 265lbs.
Saturday’s pay-per-view broadcast will be starting at 10PM ET/7PM PT, well worth the $45.95 and definitely worth $55.95 to have it in HD!*
