UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and former champ Lyoto Machida both made weight this afternoon in Toronto, Ontario, to clear the way for their main event bout tomorrow night at UFC 140.
The underdog Machida, who appeared to be the crowd favorite, weighed in at 204 pounds for the bout. The champion Jones came in at 205.
The only fighter to miss weight was Dennis Hallman, who came in at 158.5 on his initial attempt for his fight with John Makdessi. The former welterweight Hallman is attempting to make the 156 pound limit for the first time in nearly a decade.
