UFC on FX 2 weigh-in: Joe Benavidez’s new physique

Benavidez looks a little drawn, while Alves looks comfortable at the weigh-in

The flyweight era is upon us. A mini-tournament starts tonight in Australia on the UFC on FX 2 card. Joe Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson are the huge favorites in the 125-lbs. showdowns, but we'll find out if their first legitimate weight cut in years will affect their performance.

Both Johnson and Benavidez were far from true bantamweights. Johnson didn't look too much different down at 125, but there was definitely some mass missing on Joe B.

The main event fighters made weight as well. That's always a challenge for Thiago Alves. Last night, he looked as good as ever down at 170.5. Alves balloons up between fights and has missed weight for three previous fights.
