Thousands of fans turned up to watch the weigh-ins for UFC 128 up close this Friday.
Unlike in recent editions of the pre-event weight-in, there were no scandalous antics during the staredowns. Even so, the main event between Maurício Shogun and Jon Jones, for the light heavyweight title, promises great emotion.
“I feel fine, it’s the greatest opportunity of my life and is definitely a good situation,” said Jones, the challenger.
“He’s certainly a great fighter, but the belt is mine. I see some of the things he said as disrespectful. I can even understand him feeling confident, but tomorrow we’ll see who the better man is,” says Shogun.
Check out some of the highlights from the weight-in:
