UFC 107 weigh-in results

Although the UFC’s live stream video player failed once again, our friends at the FedEX Forum in Memphis tweeted us the weigh-in results. There were chants in the audience of “Fix the scales!” as most of the fighters seemed to be coming in at least 1⁄2-1lb. over weight on their first attempt.

As expected, the face-off between main event fighters B.J. Penn and Diego Sanchez was intense. Penn, who is the UFC light heavyweight champion, will be looking to defend his title against what many consider his toughest lightweight opponent to date.

Sanchez, the challenger, was asked to say a few words after the two weighed in and stared each other in the eyes. Sanches simply stated, “Destiny baby! One word. Destiny!”
