Charles Oliveira (144) vs. Frankie Edgar (146)
Anderson Silva (184) vs. Chris Weidman (185) for the middleweight title

Notes:  Leben physically did look in his best shape.  Munoz also physically looked phenomenal.  Both credited it to their diets.  Gracie looked very skinny being 6-4 1/2 and 186 pounds, huge height difference.

Silva kept walking forward to make Weidman back down, and when Weidman wouldn't, Silva kissed him the lips.  Weidman gave no vibe of being intimidated and Silva looked supremely confident.
