UFC weigh-ins for tomorrow night's show

Notes from today's weigh-ins:

Crowd was about 5,000 people, the most for a weigh-in in a long time.  There was a very significant Canadian contingent which meant that Rory MacDonald actually got loud cheers.

Prelims, which should be on this site at 6:45 p.m.

Gian Villante (205) vs. Cody Donovan (205)
Will Campuzano (135) vs. Sergio Pettis (135)
Jason High (170) vs. Anthony Lapsley (170)

FS 1 fights at 8 p.m. Eastern time

Erik Perez (135) vs. Edwin Figueroa (135)
Brian Ebersole(171) vs. Rick Story (170)
Thales Leitis (186) vs. Ed Herman (186)
Evan Dunham (156) vs. Donald Cerrone (155) - Cerrone looked super skinny in making weight, and he's talking about going to 145.  The guy is a 190 pound guy naturally and does the most unscientific weight cuts to begin with.

PPV fights at 10 p.m.

Ali Bauganitov (126) vs. Tim Elliott (125)
Tyron Woodley (171) vs. Josh Koscheck (170)
Robbie Lawler (170) vs. Rory MacDonald (171)
Chael Sonnen (206) vs. Rashad Evans (205)
Georges St-Pierre (170) vs. Johny Hendricks (170) for welterweight title

St-Pierre is clearly the star of the show.  People react to Sonnen like he's a really big deal as well.  Koscheck is like a well known heel, not loud boos but people know to boo.  MacDonald got a loud but mixed reaction, but there were people cheering him like crazy.  Lawler  and Cerrone also got big star reactions.
