Weigh-ins for tomorrow's show on FX and FOX:

Facebook at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time:

David Mitchell (11-2, 171) vs. Simeon Thoresen (17-3-1, 171)

FX at 5 p.m.

Sean Spencer (9-1, 186) vs.  Rafael Natal (14-4-1, 185)

Shawn Jordan (13-4, 251) vs. Mike Russow (15-2, 1 no contest, 256)

Vladimir Matyushenko (26-6, 205) vs. Ryan Bader (15-3, 205)

Pascal Krauss (10-1, 171) vs. Mike Stumpf (11-3, 170)

Hatsu Hioki (26-5-2, 146) vs. Clay Guida (29-13, 146), - This was the first fight that the crowd reacted to.  Guida is from the area so that's part of it.  He's taking ofever to weigh in.  Looks smaller but ripped at his new weight.  He weighed 147, then took off more clothes (not nude) and hit 146.  He did that on purpose for more face time.

Matt Wiman (15-6, 156) vs. T.J. Grant (19-5, 155) - This was hilarious.  Chael Sonnen said that Matt Wiman no longer wants to be known as Handsome Matt Wiman, so he said, whatever you do, do not call him "Handsome" like it was 1975 and an announcer instructing people do not call Luke Graham "Crazy."

FOX at 8 p.m.

Richard Lamas (12-2, 145) vs. Erik Koch (13-1, 145)

Donald Cerrone (19-4, 1 no contest, 155) vs. Anthony Pettis (13-2, 155) - Crowd reacted to both of these guys like major stars.

Glover Teixeira (19-2, 206) vs. Rampage Jackson (32-9, 204)  - Crowd booing Teixeira.  Wait a minute, aren't UFC fans all closet racist white guys and that's why they boo Rashad Evans and Jon Jones).  Jackson is in tons beter shape than he was against Ryan Bader.  He's cutting a romo on Teixeira when they got face-to-face.  Crowd reacted to this like it's a big-time fight.  Jackson, no matter how many times he loses, has great charisma and crowd appeal

Demetrious Johnson (16-2-1, 125) vs. John Dodson (15-5, 124) - Crowd reaction to these two paled compared to the previous two fights.
