If Georges St-Pierre’s exit from UFC 137 took some excitement out of Saturday’s pay-per-view broadcast, then BJ Penn and Nick Diaz did their best to inject hype back into the show during Friday’s weigh-ins.
Although both welterweights have been nothing but respectful towards each other leading up to their shootout, with Diaz even admitting he had a Penn poster hanging on his wall several years ago, the two got physical after tipping the scales.
Was their scuffle legit? Was it staged to sell more PPVs? Who knows?
It appeared to be real, as both entourages were prepared to rumble for their boy.
UFC 137 takes place Saturday inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
