Official UFC 141 Weigh-In Results As Brock Lesnar Walks Off Stage Before Interview, and Nate Diaz is Embroiled in Yet Another Controversy!
We are just 26 hours away from the moment UFC 141 goes live on pay per view, and less than 24 hours away from when the show itself officially begins. This show is in the weird position of having the number one pay per view attraction in all of UFC (Brock Lesnar) in the main event, and yet lots of concern from within UFC / Zuffa because of the unusual Friday Night pay per view airing.
Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar's return to the Octagon is against Alistair Overeem, the man who was never defeated for the StrikeForce Heavyweight Championship, who will be making his long-awaited UFC debut.
Tonight, the fighters all got weighed for the event, and the evening was not without controversy.

Nate Diaz originally weighed in at 157 pounds, and was forced to cut one pound in weight. Cerrone, wearing that cowboy hat again, said it didin't matter and was willing to fight Diaz at any weight. One hour later, UFC announced Diaz had made weight.
Brock, who has been in an increasingly surly mood all week, didn't wait for his interview with Joe Rogan and simply walked off stage after the stare down with Overeem.
