UFC 142 Rio: Anthony Johnson makes weight, fight with Vitor Belfort is on

The UFC tweeted Saturday morning that Anthony Johnson weighed in at 204.2 pounds, making his co-main event fight with Vitor Belfort at tonight's UFC 142 Rio official.

Johnson missed the max weight of 186 pounds by 11 pounds Friday, but Belfort agreed to fight him if he was no larger than 205 pounds on fight day. Ironically, this was supposed to be Johnson's first official fight at 185 pounds as he had problems making 170 pounds on several occasions.
