UFC 108 weigh-in results

Photo by Dave Mandel / Sherdog - Rashad Evans and Thiago Silva headline UFC 108, the first UFC show of the new year, which takes place this Saturday, Jan. 2.

Today’s “UFC 108: Evans vs. Silva” fighter weigh-ins took place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev. All fighters but one made weight. Paul Daley weighed in at 172 lbs. on his first attempt, and then was still over the limit after removing his shorts. If he is still over weight after being given some additional time, he is required to forfeit a percentage of his purse to his opponent Dustin Hazelett. Because it is only one pound, he will likely make the weight.

Dan Lauzon and Cole Miller had an intense stare down and exchanged words. That is one fight you do not want to miss. It is one of two preliminary bouts that will be shown on Spike TV Saturday night beginning at 9pm ET/6pm PT.

Rashad Evans (No. 4 LHW) vs. Thiago Silva (No. 8 LHW)

BRIAN FURBY: In spite of the fact I wish that one of the other 12 original main event match-ups were still going down, I’m looking forward to this fight. Both guys are quick strikers with good power and have solid all-around games. I think Silva packs more power, but I do think Rashad has a slight edge on speed and technicality while also being more elusive. I don’t think the fight is likely to hit the ground – both guys want an impressive victory to get another shot at Machida, and Rashad also has the added factor of still wanting a piece of Rampage. I think the first round will see a lot of range-testing and maybe some quick flurries where one or both guys look in danger, but in the end, I see Rashad finishing it about halfway through the second. Rashad by TKO in Round 2.

Joe Lauzon out of action until Spring 2010

On March 6th UFC lightweight prospect Joe Lauzon (18-4) had ACL surgery and his meniscus repaired on his right knee. Although “J-Lau’s” recovery is going very well, he will most likely be out of action at least until the Spring of 2010.

In a statement PRO MMA (promma.info) received today, Lauzon commented on the surgery, “Everything went as scheduled. My meniscus was repaired and the ACL cadaver grafting was successful. My doctor was very happy and optimistic that my knee will be strong. Right now, I’m walking around like a normal person; no training but I’m doing some light jogging, leg presses and squats. I’m going to lose muscle in the leg. Range of motion is the key right now. I can completely straighten my leg. I can bend it 135 degrees and 150 is normal.”
