All 24 fighters stepped on the scales Friday in Cologne, Germany, for an eventful UFC 99 weigh-in. The loudest cheers were for Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic, who will have the crowd on his side fighting a day's drive from his home in Croatia. Wanderlei Silva, fighting at a catchweight of 195 pounds for the first time in the main event against Rich Franklin, looked chiseled as he stepped on the scale at one pound under the limit. And two shoving matches broke out during stare-downs featuring undercard fighters: Denis Stojnic and Stefan Struve got a little too close and UFC President Dana White had to break them up, and then Paul Kelly bumped heads with Rolando Delgado, prompting Delgado to respond with a hard push. White could be heard saying, "Don't put your hands on each other" when the next pair of fighters had their stare-down.
