Mike Pierce (170, 13-4) vs. Josh Koscheck (170, 18-5) - Pierce wore a Koshceck wig for the staredown.  They got nose to nose and Dana White had to seperate them. 

Fabricio Werdum (246, 14-5-1) vs.  Roy Nelson (246, 17-6)

Carlos Condit (169, 27-5) vs. Nick Diaz (169, 27-7, 1 no contest) - Diaz looked very skinny at 169, more than usual.  The two are about the same height.  Nothing happened at the staredown.  Fans booed Condit.  Condit put over Diaz as the toughest guy he's ever faced, said nothing to get Diaz inflamed.  Diaz said he's there to represent Cesar Gracie Jiu Jitsu, or to take his ass whipping, whatever happens.
