The official weigh-in event for UFC 95: "Sanchez vs. Stevenson" took place today (Friday, Feb. 20) from Dominion Theatre (268-269 Tottenham Court Road) in London, England.
All 20 fighters set to compete on the card made their respective marks on the scale without incident. In fact, it was a rather subdued event, which was void of any real fireworks or final pre-fight shenanigans.
Former welterweight contender Diego Sanchez is perhaps the biggest story, making his first trip down from 170 pounds to lightweight a successful one. "Nightmare" looks like he belongs at 155, too.
