The UFC 142 weigh in extravaganza took place earlier today (Jan. 13, 2012) at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in advance of the "Aldo vs. Mendes" pay-per-view (PPV) event taking place tomorrow night (Sat., Jan. 14, 2012) at the same location.

145-pound champion Jose Aldo will defend his featherweight crown in the main event of the evening in front of a partisan crowd against American strong-arm wrestler Chad Mendes.

Anyone betting "Money" on Saturday night's headliner?

"Junior" came in at exactly 145-pounds while Mendes was just shy of the mark at 144. A bunch of other people got weighed too, but you'll have to click here to see those results.
