Paul Daley talked a lot of trash leading into his UFC 108 fight against Dustin Hazelett, maybe it took away from his conditioning time. Even after removing his shorts, the Brit missed the 170-pound welterweight limit by a pound. He wasn't allowed to cut anymore. Doctors deemed it too dangerous since he had cut a considerable amount of weight during the lead-up on Friday. He was also shaky and off-balance moments before he hits the stage. Tomorrow night, we'll find out if he has stamina issues during the co-main event.

The main eventers both made weight. Rashad Evans and Thiago Silva, who seem to be on good terms, were cordial even during their faceoff.
