The official weigh-in event for UFC 102: "Couture vs. Nogueira" took place today (Aug. 28) from the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Oregon.
It was a rather pedestrian affair with all 22 fighters hitting their respective marks without incident.
Perhaps the only noteworthy takeaway from the event was the staredown between Nate Marquardt and Demian Maia -- possibly two of the most soft-spoken and humble competitors in the sport today.
Their staredown was intense.
UFC 102 will feature a main event between mixed martial arts legends on former heavyweight champions, Randy "The Natural" Couture and Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira. Perennial light heavyweight contender Keith Jardine is set to throwdown against hard-hitting Brazilian import, Thiago Silva, in the co-featured fight of the night.
