UFC 101 Weigh-In Results

News, Results

The good news: every fighter made weight for UFC 101. That means we will have a title fight in Philadelphia (good news) and that Forrest Griffin will have a HUGE size advantage over Anderson Silva tomorrow night.

Off all the fighters, Tamden McRory was the only fighter that showed obvious physical signs of the weight cut and came to the podium wearing his sweatsuit, McRory had to shed weight down to 170 lbs. for his fight against John Howard, who gets “props” from Joe Rogan who called his haircut “bad ass”.
