NY and NJ are buzzing with UFC excitement these past few days. The UFC on FOX 3 Press Conference kicked things off yesterday and today at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J. the weigh-ins took place.
Everybody made their weight except for John Lineker who wasn’t allowed to cut the additional weight so was fined $1200 which will go to Gaudinot. Johny Hendricks was over half a pound and then took off his one pound skivvies and made it. Too funny.
Other noteables, Diaz looked especially fit, and much taller than Miller. I might have to rethink my pick. Koscheck also looked super fit so I’m okay with that pick. Lavar and Rousimar looked very intimidating. Tony Ferguson looked like he wanted to stab anybody who made contact, and Dodson was his normal bubbly elf-like self.
The fights start at 5PM ET with the main four bouts on FOX starting at 8PM ET. FUEL TV and Facebook carry the prelims.
