Fighters and fans showed up to the MTS Centre Friday afternoon for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) weigh-ins. Saturday night's sold-out UFC 161 event is the hottest ticket in town this weekend.

Among the fan favourites was Joe Rogan, who handled emcee duties at the weigh-in, as well as UFC president Dana White. Local boy Roland Delorme got some love from the fans as well, as did light heavyweights Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson, who are fighting in the main event on tomorrow night's card.
