The UFC 79: Nemesis weigh-ins went as expected as all 20 fighters for tomorrow’s year-end UFC event made weight in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
The normally low-key event featured a near-brawl between rivals Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva. After both made weight Liddell took several moments to re-dress – a move that apparently offended Silva who ripped of his shirt before the standard staredown. Following an intense eye-lock and some choice words the fighters were separated only to attempt to go at one another after Liddell flipped Silva off while walking away.
