The UFC 102 weigh-ins took place earlier today at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Oregon.
All fighters made weight. Randy Couture got a big standing ovation from his hometown crowd. Minotauro Nogueira weighed in 15 pounds lighter and appeared to be in much better shape than when we saw him back in December. He told the crowd to expect a much better Nogueira than they saw against Frank Mir.
The weigh-in results:
- Randy Couture (220) vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (231)
- Keith Jardine (205) vs. Thiago Silva (205)
