Picture
UFC 159 headliners Jon Jones (205) and Chael Sonnen (205) both made weight and are ready to rumble. During the event the challenger told his opponent: “You're going to tell your kids' kids' kids that he was real” to which the UFC Lightweight Champion simply replied: "I'm here to conquer".

Co-headliners No.10 ranked Alan Belcher (185) and TUF 3 winner Michael Bisping (186) is also official. Both started trash talking during staredown and almost started the fight right there.

Roy Nelson showed 258 pounds, while Cheick Kongo 237.
