TORONTO — In a taste of the madness that is to come on Saturday night, around 8,000 fans turned out to the Ricoh Coliseum just to watch the UFC 129 participants step on a scale. At UFC 129, there will be over 55,000 at Rogers Centre to watch two championship matches and the possible last fight of a legend.
Among the night’s biggest fights, everyone made weight. Champion Georges St. Pierre came in comfortably at 169.5 pounds, but his challenger Jake Shields came in even lighter, 169 for the welterweight title bout.
“Don’t blink,” St. Pierre said afterward.
