UFC 97 weigh in results for 'Redemption' LIVE!

The official weigh-in event for UFC 97: "Redemption" from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, has come to a close.

Perhaps the biggest surprise in a rather uneventful affair is that UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva -- who has competed before in the 205-pound class -- tipped the scale at a lean-looking 182 pounds, which is three pounds less than the 185-pound limit.

Either he trained extremely hard for this fight and lost considerable poundage or something else (such as an illness ... pure speculation) is up. It certainly didn't stop him from backing down Leites during the staredown.

Whatever ... we'll know soon enough!

Here are the complete UFC 97 weigh in results:

185 lbs.: UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva (182) vs. Thales Leites (185)
205 lbs.: Chuck Liddell (206) vs. Mauricio Rua (206)
