UFC 129 Weigh-In Results

TORONTO -- In a taste of the madness that is to come on Saturday night, around 8,000 fans turned out to the Ricoh Coliseum just to watch the UFC 129 participants step on a scale. At UFC 129, there will be over 55,000 at Rogers Centre to watch two championship matches and the possible last fight of a legend.

Among the night's biggest fights, everyone made weight. Champion Georges St. Pierre came in comfortably at 169.5 pounds, but his challenger Jake Shields came in even lighter, 169 for the welterweight title bout.

"Don't blink," St. Pierre said afterward.

Featherweight champion Jose Aldo came in at 145 pounds for his title defense, but looked drained after sitting through the beginning of the first-ever collection of all seven UFC champions, an event that took place an hour before weigh-ins. No. 1 contender Mark Hominick was officially announced at 145.25, but officials later said he was 145. For title fights, there is no weight allowance given, though it was unclear about why he was not forced to weigh in with his shorts off to make the mandatory number.

Randy Couture got one of the day's biggest ovations as he possibly wraps up a legendary career. The fans chanted his name as he walked in, and Couture easily made weight, coming in at 203.5, while Lyoto Machida was 204.5.

The only fighter that missed weight was Ben Henderson, who was 156.5 for his lightweight bout with Mark Bocek. Henderson weighed in naked and missed. The UFC then lowered the audio level of the speakers, afraid that the vibration might be affecting the scale. It was of no use, and Henderson has one hour to lose one-half pound to make the fight official.
