Wow ... talk about a reception for UFC Welterweight Champion, Matt Serra, during the official weigh-in for UFC 83: "Serra vs. St. Pierre 2" this afternoon.
It was a downright hostile crowd at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which is not surprising considering Serra's opponent -- and hometown star -- Georges St. Pierre, as well as his "disparaging" remarks heading into this event.
I just can't fathom what it's going to be like tomorrow night when the fight actually takes place.
"If you're pissed right now, wait until Saturday night," Serra shouted over the crowd. Something tells me the Mounties should crack out the riot gear just in case that prediction is accurate.
Meanwhile, Michael Bisping and Charles McCarthy head a head-bumping, obscenity-swapping staredown. And there's clearly no love lost between Jason MacDonald and Joe Doerksen.
At any rate, here are the complete UFC 83 weigh-in results:
