Come for the champions, stay for the weigh ins.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) today announced yet another fan friendly event to coincide with the upcoming UFC 129: "St. Pierre vs. Shields" pay-per-view (PPV) event on April 30 in Toronto, Canada.

This Friday (April 29) at 3:15 p.m. ET, all seven UFC world champions will gather for a special presentation and media photo shoot at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto.

Streamed live on, the ceremony precedes the UFC 129 weigh in event, which immediately follows the championship gala at 4 p.m. ET.

UFC President Dana White shares his excitement over his unveiling of the "Super 7:"

"We wanted to give fans a truly once-in-a-lifetime chance to see all seven UFC champions gathered together and we couldn’t think of a better place to do it than in Toronto. The entire week is going to be crazy. From the community events to the Fan Expo to 55,000 people at Rogers Centre for UFC 129, I am really looking forward to taking over the city of Toronto."

UFC 129 is set to feature a main event between Canada's own Georges St. Pierre, defending his welterweight title against fresh challenger -- and former Elite XC and Strikeforce champion -- Jake Shields.

In front of 55,000 screaming Canadians.

The event is also expected to include "Father Time" Randy Couture, defying the odds once again to take on Karate master Lyoto Machida.
