The UFC weigh-ins went
down today in Brazil with both champions hitting the mark to make their title fight official. The Main Event pits Anderson Silva versus Yushin Okami. Okami came in at a slim 183 pounds, a full two pounds lighter than necessary. He promises to leave the hostile Brazil crowd disappointed when he leaves with the middleweight title. “I’m going to do my best, and I’m going to take home the belt,” Okami said. “Don’t miss it, I’m going to be here with my all, I’m going to win.”
His challenger Anderson Silva is looking to add onto his UFC record of wins and title defenses when he steps into the cage with Okami on Saturday night. He is a Brazilian native so he is the crowd favorite. Silva predicts that it will be “Brazil vs. the World” at UFC 134. “I hope everyone comes here and watches this great event tomorrow night cause it’s Brazil versus the rest of the world,” Silva stated. Here is how the rest of the weigh ins went down.
