The official weigh in event for UFC on FUEL TV 8: "Silva vs. Stann" took place today (Fri., March 1, 2013) from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
Although a few different fighters had to use the towel while dropping trousers, only Diego Sanchez missed weight, coming in two pounds over the limit for his lightweight bout against Takanori Gomi. He'll have one hour to cut the additional mass and we'll keep you updated on that situation.
"Silva vs. Stann" will feature a light heavyweight bangfest pitting PRIDE FC legend Wanderlei Silva against American war hero Brian Stann in the main event of the evening.
