The official weigh in event for UFC 156: "Aldo vs. Edgar" -- the promotion's annual Super Bowl weekend fight card extravaganza -- took place today (Fri., Feb. 1, 2013) LIVE from Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
After a few preliminary fighters missed weight, there was initial confusion over the integrity of the scale. As it turned out, though, Dustin Kimura, Francisco Rivera, and Edwin Figueroa all simply came in heavy.
We'll be sure to update you on each fighter's status as it becomes available.
