The UFC on FOX 5 wweigh-ins are in the book’s for tonight’s event. Title challenger Nate Diaz initially weighed in at 155.6 lbs. and later looked surprised he did not get the one pound allowance in a title fight. In a title fight, you are not allowed to come in one pound over the weight limit. Diaz weighed in a second time at 155.2 lbs., but on his third try he was able to finally make weight.
