The UFC 107 weigh-ins took place this afternoon at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee.
What a bizarre weigh-in event. A handful of fighters had to get completely naked to make weight. Edgar Garcia missed it by 2lbs. Then Cheick Kongo completely turns his back to Frank Mir during their staredown. He’s obviously still very pissed at Mir. Then Diego Sanchez comes out chanting YES!, the crowd starts chanting along with him, and then he misses weight by a pound. If it keeps up we’re going to be in for a crazy one tomorrow night.
Update: Diego weighed in at 154.5 on his second try sans shorts.
Update 2: Gouveia-Belcher is a 195lbs catchweight bout per Gouveia’s request earlier today.
Update 3: Edgar Garcia shed the 2 lbs. and hit 171 on his second attempt.

- B.J. Penn (155) vs. Diego Sanchez (154.5)
