NEWARK, N.J. – MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was on scene for today’s official fighter weigh-ins for UFC 159, where all 24 competitors are official for Saturday’s card.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones (17-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC) meets two-time middleweight title challenger Chael Sonnen (27-12-1 MMA, 6-5 UFC) in the night’s main event. Both champion and challenger were on the mark at 205 pounds even for the title fight.

In the co-main event, things got heated between Alan Belcher (18-7 MMA, 9-5 UFC) and Michael Bisping (23-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC), who have ramped up their trash talk in the final days leading up to their middleweight fight. Belcher came in at 185 pounds, while Bisping was 186. But at their face-off, after some finger pointing and shouting, Belcher pushed Bisping and the two had to be broken up by UFC President Dana White.

Also on the pay-per-view main card, heavyweights Cheick Kongo (18-7-2 MMA, 11-5-1 UFC) and Roy Nelson (18-7 MMA, 5-3 UFC) finally meet. Kongo was 237 pounds, while Nelson was 258.

Friday’s weigh-ins took place at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., the same site that hosts Saturday’s fight card. The main card airs on pay-per-view (10 p.m. ET) following prelims on FX (8 p.m.) and Facebook (6:30 p.m.).
