UFC 131 weigh-in notes



Weigh-ins were done outdoors due to the Rogers Arena being used for the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs tonight.  The only sign of that was Kenny Florian coming out wearing a Boston Bruins hockey jersey, which got him booed, although nobody was cheered or booed over the top.  The Canadian fighters, Sam Stout, Krzysztos Soszynski and Nick Ring seemed popular, as did Demian Maia.  Aaron Rosa, who used to fight at 205, looked way out of shape at 261 for his fight with Joey Beltran. 

Florian did look more drawn out than anyone else at 145 and was the most muscular of his career.  Shane Carwin at 254 looked smaller than he has in the past, with the exception of his UFC debut, but he was in much better shape here than his UFC debut, which was when he was going through a divorce.
