If you saw or heard about yesterday’s press conference in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil, then you shouldn’t be surprised to hear that Luke Rockhold and Vitor Belfort needed to be separated at today’s UFC on FX 8 weigh-ins.
After Belfort tipped the scales at 186 pounds and headed over to meet Rockhold for the customary face-off, he was abruptly met by Rockhold who stepped right into the vet. Officials immediately had to step into separate the two. Rockhold also came in at 186 for the middleweight tilt.
Tomorrow’s five round fight is building up pretty nicely.
