The official weigh-in event for UFC 133: "Evans vs. Ortiz II" took place today (Aug. 5, 2011) at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
And aside from Ivan Menjivar praying to the mixed martial arts (MMA) God's that he would make the 135-pound limit for his fight against Nick Pace, he came in three pounds over at 138.
He'll have two hours to lose an additional two pounds. All other competitors for tomorrow night's pay-per-view broadcast made their respective weights without incident.
"Evans vs. Ortiz II" will feature a reworked light heavyweight main event between former 205-pound straphangers Rashad Evans and Tito Ortiz. Also booked for "The City of Brotherly Love" is a middleweight mash-up pitting Vitor "The Phenom" Belfort against Japanese superstar Yoshihiro Akiyama.
