Darren Uyenoyama (8-3, 125) vs. Joseph Benavidez (17-3, 125) - Benavidez was the first guy to get a star reaction even though he's facing a Bay Area guy.

Lorenz Larkin (13-0, 1 no contest, 186) vs. Francis Carmont (20-7 186)

Darren Elkins (17-2, 145) vs. Chad Mendes (13-1, 146)

FOX fights at 8 p.m.

Jordan Mein (23-8, 170) vs. Matt Brown (18-11, 171) - Brown is coming back from training with the Cuban Olympic wrestling team.

Josh Thomson (19-5, 1 no contest, 155) vs. Nate Diaz (16-8, 156) - Diaz was 157, took off his underwear, they took forever to give him the 156.  Crowd very into this.  for one, both are local.

Daniel Cormier (11-0, 235) vs. Frank Mir (16-6, 257) - Mir got booed a lot.  Both guys were sayings to each other, threatening the other with bodily harm.

Benson Henderson (18-2, 155) vs. Gilbert Melendez (21-2, 154) for the UFC - Melendez looks physically in the best shape I've ever seen him in.  Henderson was booed but you'd figure that.  He's choosing to weigh in naked so it's a close call, but he made it.

Henderson looks ridiculously skinny but he's looked that way at recent weigh-ins.  He's drinking water like he just got out of the Sahara Desert, which probably isn't all that different from where he's just come from.
