The official weigh-in event for UFC 105: "Couture vs. Vera" took place today (Nov. 13) from the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena in Manchester, England.
It was a rather pedestrian affair with all 22 fighters hitting their respective marks without incident.
Perhaps the only noteworthy takeaway from the event was the staredown between Dan Hardy and Mike Swick -- who have been building their welterweight fight up over the past few weeks.
Their staredown was intense.
UFC 105: "Couture vs. Vera" will feature a main event between former heavyweight champion, Randy "The Natural" Couture, returning to light heavyweight to battle Brandon "The Truth" Vera. In addition, hometown favorite Michael "The Count" Bisping will take on Pride FC standout, Denis Kang, in the co-featured fight of the night.
Welterweights Mike Swick and Dan Hardy are also booked to get busy inside the Octagon to help clarify the suddenly murky 170-pound number one contender situation.
