The UFC 134 weigh-ins took place this afternoon at the HSBC Arena at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
All fighters made weight.
All the Brazilian fighters, especially Anderson Silva, Shogun Rua and Big Nog, got a lot of love from Brazil at the weigh-ins. Their opponents, not so much. The crowd nearly booed every foreign fighter out of the building. There was definitely a “Brazil vs. the World” vibe, as it was described in Anderson Silva’s post-weigh-in interview.
The weigh-in results:
- Anderson Silva (184) vs. Yushin Okami (183)
- Forrest Griffin (205) vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (205)
