All UFC 121 fighters make weight

The twenty-two men scheduled to square off Saturday night at UFC 121 in Anaheim stepped on the scale in Friday afternoon and proceeded to weigh-in without incident. As all fighters hit their mark, all bouts will go on as originally scheduled.

UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar clocked in at a full twenty pounds heavier than contender Cain Velasquez but actually came in at below 265 lbs for the first time in his career. The slightly slimmer, but equally fit, Lesnar weighed 264 pounds with Velasquez registering at 244 respectively.

Meanwhile, newcomer Jake Shields had no problem making the 171-pound limit in preparation for his promotional debut against Martin Kampmann. The former Strikeforce 185-pound champion, who hasn’t fought as a welterweight in more than two years, weighed in at 170.5 pounds while Kampmann hit 170 lbs on the dot.
