The UFC 87 weigh-ins took place today in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Target Center.
The weigh-ins went off without a hitch. All fighters made weight. The highlight of the weigh-ins was Joe Rogan calling Luke Cummo vs Tamdan McCrory, “The Battle of the Nerds.” Brock Lesnar was obviously huge. Heath Herring looked like he’s in the best shape of his life. That should be a good one.
The weigh-in results:
- Georges St. Pierre (170) vs. Jon Fitch (170)
- Brock Lesnar (265) vs. Heath Herring (250)
- Kenny Florian (155) vs. Roger Huerta (155)
- Demian Maia (185) vs. Jason MacDonald (185)
- Manny Gamburyan (155) vs. Rob Emerson (155)
- Luke Cummo (167) vs. Tamdan McCrory (170)
- Cheick Kongo (235) vs. Dan Evensen (244)
- Andre Gusmao (205) vs. Jon Jones (205)
- Steve Bruno (170) vs. Chris Wilson (170)
- Ben Saunders (170) vs. Ryan Thomas (170)
Fighters in non-title fights are allowed to weigh in one pound over the weight class limit, although no one needed it this time.
UFC 87 “Seek & Destroy” will take place tomorrow, August 9, at 10PM ET/ 7PM PT at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The event will air live on pay-per-view.
