The crop of 18 fighters for UFC 74: "Respect" have all weighed-in for the pay-per-view (PPV) event tomorrow evening from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It was not incident-free, however.
Middleweight Thales Leites tipped the scales at 188 pounds -- three pounds over the 185-division limit. He has two hours to lose two pounds to reach the 186 threshold (one pound over the limit in non-title fights).
Update: Leites shed the two pounds within the two-hour limit and is set to battle Jensen tomorrow night.
Not surprisingly, Josh Koscheck receive less than a warm welcome when he approached the podium. On the other hand, his opponent Georges St. Pierre was showered with praise.
Kendall Grove and Patrick Cote got into some very close, head-rubbing trash talking, while light heavyweights Renato "Babalu" Sobral and David Heath seemed to have a few choice words for one another, too.
Here are the official results:
Hvywt.: Randy Couture (228.5) vs. Gabriel Gonzaga (252)
170 lbs.: Georges St. Pierre (170) vs. Josh Koscheck (170)
155 lbs.: Joe Stevenson (155) vs. Kurt Pellegrino (155)
