Leben weighing in at 186 is interesting, he's obviously got a specific gameplan worked out here. And Vera weighing in at 203 is a good sign for Vera fans

Everyone made weight which is a good thing.

I think Vera needs to put on some weight I heard he was walking around at about 200 lbs. 203 is kinda light.

is there going to be any footage of the weigh ins? i always like to see if they are in good shape or not before the fights.

What the hell is Vera doing weighing in at 203? he should be big for LHW , i think he is going to be a bit weak for this fight am changing my pick to Jardine now.

Vera weighing in at 203, seems odd, maybe he's going to go to MW eventually, apperently Silva walks around quite a bit bigger than that between fights.

Vera was fighting HW in the 220's. With a little spare tire action going on and a very soft, udefined look. His walking-in-shape weight could actually be about 200, post weight cutting even lower. 203-205 should actually be comfortable for him- just not the first time out or so.

And maybe he lost natural weight instead of the hard forced cutting; Needed the time to naturally cut down. This really could signal that he'll be in better shape. He is definitely going to need it in this match.
