Things got interesting during the Fisher vs. Stephens weigh-in. Stephens weighed in before Fisher and was waiting for the staredown. Fisher came up to him like he was going to hit him. Stephens gave him a fake backhand and words were exchanged. The two were separated but were still exchanging words. Who knew the battle for Iowa would be so intense?
Credeur and Sanchez had a lot of supporters in the crowd, especially Sanchez. He is back to his old super-intense style that he had when he was racking up wins. He looked like he wanted to fight at the weigh-ins.
Grove was especially intense as well and refused to shake hands with Tanner after the staredown. Tanner came out in sun glasses, a bandanna, and a crazy beard. He looked like Kimbo Slice.
Seen attending the weigh-ins were UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and trainer Juanito Ibarra; TUF 7 competitors Mike Dolce, Jeremy May, and Gerald Harris; TUF alum Troy Mandaloniz; and Ariel Helwani of MMARated.com.
In an interesting turn of events, there were actually a fair amount of people going up to May seeking pictures and autographs.
