No real major notes past Hallman missing weight and he looked like he got as far down as he could.  Soszynski and Hominick as Canadians were probably the most loudly cheered, along with Patrick.

Ortiz came out with a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey on so he got a weird reaction since a lot of people wanted to boo him and he threw them off.

Frank Mir was booed.  Nogueira really had a look of determination on his face like he badly wants to take this fight.

Jones was booed far more than anyone else.  Not a surprise he would hear boos, but not at this level.  He gave the smile like it didn't bother him which doesn't necessarily mean it didn't.

Nobody looked out of shape.  Mir was in good shape visually carrying 260.  Nothing like Cain Velasquez or Cung Le at the recent shows where the weigh-in made you pause and think about the fight.
