UFC 116 Weigh-In Notes

* Holy crap, these are on Spike! Awesome!

* There’s only one Hurricane, Gerald Harris, and his name is Denzel Washington

* I really do love Reljic – I was flat out shocked to hear that he got decisioned by CB Dollaway. I hope he makes a great comeback and does something for those Croat fans that have so little to be happy about these days.

* Not only is he a huge 185er, he’s fighting Kendall “I Refuse To Change My Nickname Despite How Absurd It Is” Grove, so go ahead and join me on this

* Grove has a stupid beard that makes me hate him even more (ha ha, no Spike fight for you)

* How cool is it to see Seth Petruzelli back in the UFC?

* Joe Rogan announces Seth as “the man that single-handedly killed Elite XC”. I didn’t know $kala was fighting.

* Schaub is a Colorado guy, but I think Tuscherererererer is a bad match up. Everyone is sleeping on The Crowbar because he got punted in the nuts by Gonzaga.

* 238 (Schaub) v 255 (Chris) – Vemola came in at a dainty, Couture-like 222 v. Jon Madsen’s 254

* Matt Brown was Court McGee before Court McGee was Court McGee

* If you don’t love Chris Lytle, I don’t know what to tell you.

* Are you guys going to freak out if Kurt Pellegrino is fighting for a title shot later this year? I have no issues with whomever wins this fight going into a #1 contender’s match.

* Snuffleupagus kind of looks like a defendant in a Mob movie walking to the stage

* Batman does a staredown on Dana – pure awesomeness from Kurt

* Oh yeah, Stephen Bonner is fighting again, zz… actually, he looks pretty fucking cut

* Then again, he’s fighting someone that sprang from the Chernobyl reactor core, so…

* I hope Leben comes out and throws a beer on Akiyama’s self important ass

* Walking on stage for your second weight cut in 14 days has to be kind of trippy.

* Leben does the staredown with his right hand about a foot in front of his face

* The biggest physical/promotional match-up in UFC history, sez Joe

* And here we go…

* Carwin is throwing the crowd trinkets, he loves them, he might as well ride a white horse into the cage

* Headblade has done the job – 265 for Shane Carwin

* And for the first time in almost a year, Brock Lesnar gets to hear the boos

* Stoic walk on stage – Brock looks ridiculous

* Brock does the stare down in a southpaw stance – more mind games?

* Brock = boos and buys from hardcores and casuals

* Brock is uncharacteristically diplomatic – he seems genuinely happy to be back.

* EXTRA: Dana tells Joe he expects Akiyama/Leben to be “gunslinging bangfest”. No word if it will cost extra.
