UFC 127 weigh-in: Bisping fired up, Penn wears jeans

The weigh-ins for UFC 127 in Sydney went off without a hitch and the UFC even stifled any pushing and shoving that could've occured.

Jon Fitch and B.J. Penn went nose-to-nose during the staredown. Penn is the much smaller fighter. He weighed in at 167.2 but he was also wearing his jeans. Fitch is likely to walk into the Octagon with a weight advantage of somewhere between 15 and 20 pounds.

It was also no surprise to see Michael Bisping so hyped up that he was ready to deck Jorge Rivera. Bisping weighed in at 185.2, drank a full bottom of something to begin the rehydration process and then walked aggressively across the stage. UFC president Dana White was johnny-on-the-spot stepping in between the two middleweights.

Nineteen of the 20 remaining fighters made weight and provided few highlights before, during and after they hit the scale. There was an issue with Denis Siver, who weighed in at 156.6. Siver was given an hour to get down to 156.
