The entire lot of competitors slated for action at UFC 146 stepped on the scale earlier this afternoon and all made weight, not necessarily a surprise in the case of the evening’s main card competitors who are all heavyweights and were at little risk of exceeding the 265-pound limit. The show’s main event and co-headlining bout featured the greatest disparity in terms of weight with a 20-plus pound gap between opponents in each bout.
Specifically, divisional champion Junior dos Santos weighed 239 pounds in comparison to Frank Mir’s 261 pounds, while Antonio Silva was the largest fighter on the card at 264 pounds with Cain Velasquez coming in at 240 flat.

MMATraining Take: The weights on this card remind me of how badly MMA needs a cruiserweight division covering 206-240 pounds. It’s silly that other weight-classes have to be within 10-15 pounds of each other (and are typically closer to 2-3 pounds apart) when looking at the heavyweights’ differences.
