UFC 148: "Silva vs. Sonnen 2" is all set to pop off tomorrow night (Sat., July 7, 2012) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, featuring a middleweight championship showdown pitting reigning 185-pound king Anderson Silva against the man who just won't go away, Chael Sonnen.

Also on tap for the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's big Independence Day weekend event is the retirement fight (he says) of Tito Ortiz, who will try to go out on a high note by taking two of three in his trilogy against Forrest Griffin.

And don't forget about Patrick Cote vs. Cung Le!

Before we can get to the good stuff, however, every one of the competitors on tomorrow night's fight card had to hit the scales to make sure they weren't carrying any extra baggage. Thankfully, none of them were and we're all good to go.

After the jump, you can check out photos from the talented Esther Lin of MMAFighting.com, who was on the scene snapping shots at today's UFC 148 weigh-in event.
