Chris Weidman now takes his turn as the hunted.

Weidman checked in at 184 pounds, as he prepares to defend the Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight crown against former champion Anderson Silva (185) in the UFC 168 main event on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Women’s bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey (135) and archrival Miesha Tate (135), who will duke it out for UFC gold in the co-headliner, also met their contracted weight requirements without issue at Friday’s official weigh-in.

Note - Almost all fighters were on weight. Diego Brandao was 7 lbs over.

7 pounds over? Shame on you, Brandao!

Karma will come in the form of an ass whooping by Poirier.

Crazy to see Anderson not all up in his opponent's face at the weigh ins.

Inexcusable by Brandao. This fight was announced 14 weeks ago so there is no reason for coming in that far overweight.
I'm hoping for Poirier to put a hurtin on Diego. The Diamond is now my 2nd favorite current fighter now that GSP is retired only behind JDS.

Man this event is gonna be sweet. Even the FS1 Prelims and Online Prelims are pretty decent fights.

Poirier definitely gave brandao the business for missing weight

Makes you wonder if Brandao's world-renowned cardio will take a hit.

Brandao is the best first round fighter in the business, and appears to be one of the least disciplined guys in the business as well.

It's also possible that Poirier might have been pissed at the weigh ins because of the Twitter exchanges the two of them had.

Looks like Poirier dominated the Twitter exchange almost as much as he'll dominate the fight.

Everyone keeps saying 8 pounds, but technically it's 7 since they're allowed to be 146 for non-title fights. Still ridiculous though for sure.

After a second attempt he weighed in at 151.5. They took 25% of his purse, but Poirier will make him pay more than that in the cage

Brandao was way over weight
Thought I saw him at the Buffett line prior to weigh ins

Crazy weigh ins.

I think more likely Dustin is gonna finish this fight
