The official weigh-in results for UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote," which were recorded today (October 24) from the Chicago Theatre in Chicago, Ill., are in.
Perhaps the biggest questions heading into the event was whether or not Thiago Alves could hit the scale with no problems. "The Pitbull" came in at a ready 171 pounds, using the one pound over the division limit that is alloted to all fighters in nontitle fights.
Josh Burkman was not as fortunate. "The People's Warrior" required an additional hour to shed two pounds, having initially weighed in at 173 pounds.
