Lyoto Machida made weight just minutes ago for his UFC 140 bout with Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight championship. He looked to be in his usual level of shape while Jones looked very fit but also was booed loudly by the Toronto crowd.

Of course, these are just rumors at this point and it's not the first time we've heard such information heading into a fight. But it is worth noting that the word is out there and Machida may face more than Jones' dynamic attacking style when the two men step into the cage.

We'll keep you up to date on any new information or developments as best we can heading into the event.

Maybe a staph infection like Big Nog had against Mir in their first fight

Not sure if you're paying attention. They actually haven't fought yet. This is a pre-fight comment.

It also isn't coming from Machida. Sounds like leaked info. Not an excuse.

The point I was trying to make is, I don't want to hear Machida or his people say he was sick/injured/whatever the case may be after this fight.

And No, I haven't heard Machida specifically complain before but you know that old saying.... "Guilty by association."
