The fighter weigh-ins took place Friday at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England, in preparation for Saturday’s “UFC 105: Couture vs. Vera” card at the same location. On Nov. 14, and airing via tape delay on Spike TV, the ageless Randy “The Natural” Couture moves back down to light heavyweight to give Brandon Vera the opportunity of a lifetime. Both Vera and Couture weighed in at exactly 204 lbs. In fact, putting an end to a bad trend, all fighters made weight on their first attempt.
Although ProMMA.info’s play-by-play starts as the fights begin airing on Spike TV at 8 p.m. ET Saturday, we will have the initial “quick” fight results starting at approximately 12:30 a.m. ET / 9:30 a.m. PT. Here are the official UFC 105 weigh in results (more photos after the jump):
