The weigh-ins for Saturday night's UFC 153 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, went off without a hitch, as all 24 fighters made weight on Friday.
This, of course, includes the main event of Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar. Both fighters check in for their three-round, light heavyweight main event bout.
While the world's top pound-for-pound fighter, Silva (32-4), won't be putting his middleweight title on the line, his 16-fight win streak is at stake. He weighed in at 202 pounds. This is Silva's third bout at 205 pounds in the UFC and his first since he knocked out Forrest Griffin at UFC 101.
"You've seen my fights, right?" Bonnar asked. "I'm not going to do anything different than I usually do in the Octagon."Bonnar (14-7), the winner of three in a row, clocked in at 205.
Silva-Bonnar came without the histrionics that often accompany Silva weigh-ins, as the two simply shook hands and posed for photos.
"I hope this fight is a great fight for the fans," said Silva through an interpreter. "I want to give back to everyone and I hope for a good fight."

Anderson Silva (202) vs. Stephan Bonnar (205)
