UFC weigh-in notes
We'll update this with the undercard shortly.
Aside from the Anthony Johnson story, everything went smooth, as a strongly pro-Brazilian crowd chanted "You will die" at Americans Chad Mendes and Anthony Johnson, who were heavily booed as well, as they face Brazilian stars Jose Aldo Jr. and Vitor Belfort respectively in the UFC 142 main fights.

Johnson forfeits 20% of his purse to Belfort for missing weight by 11 pounds. Seriously, how can you possibly pull this off? If Johnson weighs more than 205 come fight time tomorrow, the fight will be canceled.
