Walel Watson (9-4, 135.2) vs. Mitch Gagnon (8-2, 135.0) - Huge height edge for Watson
Simeon Thoresen (17-2-1, 170.4) vs. Seth Baczynski (16-6, 171.0) - Baczynski very concerned about the weigh-in, toweling himself off before stepping on scale and weighing in nude.

Marcus Brimage (5-1, 145.4) vs. Jimy Hettis (10-0, 145.8)
Lance Benoist (6-1, 170.4) vs. Sean Pierson (12-6, 169.4)

Vinny Magalhaes (10-5, 1 NC, 204.8) vs. Igor Pokrajac (25-8, 205.0)

PPV at 10 p.m.

Charles Oliveira (16-2, 1 NC, 146.4) vs. Cub Swanson (17-5, 145.8) - Oliveira missed weight.  Apparently there was some sort of an agreement in place.  More to come.

Roger Hollett (13-3, 203.6) vs. Matt Hamill (11-4, 205.6) - Hamnill showed up looking in good shape.  Big question mark given his age and coming out of retirement.

Brian Stann (12-4, 185.4) vs. Michael Bisping (23-4, 185.6) - Bisping looked good shape.  Stann looks a little drawn.  They went head-to-head but then shook hands.  Fans were  pretty excited about this one.  Didn't sound like either guy was booed.

Demertrious Johnson (15-2-1, 125.0) vs. Joseph  Benavidez (16-2, 124.4) for the UFC flyweight title - Benavidez went right to the liquids after weighing in.  Both look small at this weight.  Well, they're small at any weight, but you know what I mean. 

Jon Jones (16-1, 204.6 vs. Vitor Belfort (21-9, 204.2) - Crowd booed the hell out of Jones and are chanting "Vitor" like crazy.   Jones still has the beard.  Seriously, Jones is probably going to kill him.  The natural size difference is ridiculous when you see them standing together.  Jones tried to have a sense of humor about the booing but you could see he wasn't happy about it..
