I've never seen Vera so muscular and cut in my entire life. And to say both Leben and Bisping look ready to go is a huge understatement.

Cised.

UPDATE: MMA Weekly's got a few photos up. More after the jump:

MMA Weekly's got a write-up of the event:

Bisping looked to be in fantastic shape for this bout and seemed to be full of confidence. Leben by contrast was quiet and confident.

He apologized in addressing the crowd, “I'm sorry for coming over and ruining your guys' big hope and dream. I know you love him, but I didn’t come all this way to lose. One of us will take a step back and the other a step forward; there isn’t too many ahead of us now.”

This appeared to infuriate Bisping even more, who retorted, “You’re right, one forward and one down. I am moving forward. You underestimate me and I think that is a mistake. May the best man win and I will see you tomorrow night.”

Massive cheers greeted Paul Kelly as he tipped the scales at 169 looking in phenomenal shape. His cheers were almost matched by the boos Marcus Davis received from the crowd moments earlier.

Thierry Rameau Sokoudjou was shredded as he stepped on the scales, making opponent Luiz Cane looked positively lean by comparison. Sokoudjou was all business, no jokes, no smiles; just pure serious intent.

Finally, Dan Hardy and Akihiro Gono exchanged hairdressing tips as the Japanese came out with lairy hairdo and bling. Hardy had his trademark Mohawk. Between the two you could have thought you had walked in on a hair fashion show about to square off.
