As many likely expected would be the case, Jon Jones was greeted by a chorus of boos this afternoon in Toronto, Ontario, as the UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion weighed in for his bout tomorrow night with Vitor Belfort.

Jones, who has been criticized as of late for the well documented role he played in the cancellation of UFC 151, came in at 204.6 pounds for the title fight. Belfort, who has been fighting recently at 185 pounds, tipped the scales at 204.2.

In the card’s other title fight, both Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson came in at 124.4 and 125 pounds respectively for their flyweight bout.

All of the scheduled competitors for UFC 152 were cleared for tomorrow’s card, although there appeared to be some confusion surrounding Charles Oliveira. The former lightweight weighed in at 146.4 for his featherweight bout with Cub Swanson, which prompted some discussion amongst officials, before it was announced that Oliveira was in fact on weight.

Here are the official weigh-ins for UFC 152, which will be hosted by Toronto’s Air Canada Centre.
