Mauricio Rua and Dan Henderson on target at UFC 139 weigh-ins

The weigh-ins for UFC 139 came and went earlier this afternoon though the festivities were far from flawless, as a few fighters missed weight including Nick Pace who came in five pounds over the bantamweight limit for his bout with Miguel Torres. Torres too was over the required mark, as was Shamar Bailey for his respective bout, though it was said the backstage scale was off by a few pounds causing the eventual confusion once the fighters hit the stage.

Torres has since dropped the required weight and is good to go.

However, all main card competitors made weight including headliners Mauricio Rua and Dan Henderson with “Shogun” clocking in at 205 pounds on the dot and “Hendo” a few ticks lighter at 203.

Interested folks can watch the prelims through Facebook and Spike TV when the show begins 5:45 PM EST then tune in for the primary pairings on PPV starting at 9:00 PM EST.
