The official weigh-in event for UFC 109: "Relentless" took place today (Feb. 5) from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
All 22 fighters who tipped the scales did so without incident, including main event participants, former champions and UFC Hall of Famers, Randy Couture and Mark Coleman.
Middleweights Nate Marquardt and Chael Sonnen -- who will battle in the co-featured fight of the night for the opportunity to challenge the winner of Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort in late 2010 -- had somewhat of a heated staredown, but other than that, no real fireworks popped off tonight.
Let's hope that changes big time tomorrow (Feb. 6) when "Super Saturday" fight night kicks off.
