Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held its weigh in event earlier today (May 17, 2013) at the Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil, for those fighters competing at UFC on FX 8: "Belfort vs. Rockhold" event, which is scheduled to take place at the same location tomorrow night live on the FX channel.

"The Phenom" promptly throat slashed at the crowd. I think he means he's going to murder death kill Rockhold inside the Octagon tomorrow night. Or something like that.
See the video of it right here.
You can at least get a look at how each fighter chose to square off against his opponent, though:
185 lbs.: Chris Camozzi vs. Ronaldo Souza
185 lbs.: Joao Zeferino vs. Rafael Natal
