UFC 98 Weigh-In Results: Everyone Makes Weight, Fans Boo Evans

All 22 fighters stepped on the scales Friday afternoon and made weight for Saturday night's UFC 98, including heavyweight champion Rashad Evans and challenger Lyoto Machida. In something of a surprise, there was noticeable booing of the champion from the fans in Las Vegas. It might be a pro-Machida crowd on Saturday night at the MGM Grand.

Matt Serra, who will fight Matt Hughes in the co-main event, weighed in at 171, within the one-pound allowance of the welterweight limit. There had been rumors that Serra was having trouble making weight, but he made it. Hughes weighed in at 170.

Full results for Friday's UFC 98 weigh-ins are below.

Rashad Evans (205) vs. Lyoto Machida (204)
Matt Hughes (170) vs. Matt Serra (171)
Dan Miller (185) vs. Chael Sonnen (186)
Frank Edgar (155) vs. Sean Sherk (156)
Xavier Foupa-Pokam (186) vs. Drew McFedries (185)
Brock Larson (171) vs. Mike Pyle (173*)
Pat Barry (237) vs. Tim Hague (263)
Kyle Bradley (156) vs. Phillipe Nover (156)
Andre Gusmao (206) vs. Krzysztof Soszynski (206)
Brandon Wolff (170) vs. Yoshiyuki Yoshida (171)
David Kaplan (156) vs. George Roop (154)
*UPDATE: Pyle took the fight on short notice and was permitted to come in a couple pounds over the welterweight limit.

I'll be tweeting the results of Saturday night's fights, so follow me on Twitter.
