The lightweight champion weighed in at 155 pounds for the five round fight, while Pettis came in at 154.5. The two, as one would expect, engaged in a pretty heated stare down after making weight. Of course, there’s a little baggage tied to the fight, as Pettis worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Henderson at WEC 53 in December, 2010.
All of the scheduled competitors for UFC 164 made weight, including co-headliners Frank Mir and Josh Barnett, who came in at 248 and 255 respectively.
