Did anyone notice any NSAC at the weigh-ins? It just seemed like fighters where just weighing in and it didn't matter if they made weight or not. Anyone got any insight on this?

Here's a link to a weighin video.

They had catch weights negotiated into a couple of contracts. I know in Lee's case it was probably because he was a last minute replacement. As for Sakarai , I don't know why he negotiated that weight. Everyone else get's to be 1 pound over for vegas in non-title fights by rule.

Hendo actually looks good at 200. When he used to fight at LHVY before I always thought he looked soft. He's no bodybuilder now, but you can see that he has put on some muscle at least.

sakurai looked less than impressive at the weigh-ins, I'm almost having second thoughts.
