UFC 126 Weigh-In Coverage, UFC Fighters Make Predictions On The Fight Fix

As we stated yesterday, host Dustin Green is live in Las Vegas for UFC 126 and is bringing you daily recaps of each day's action in the lead up to the event itself.

Today our intrepid host brings you not only exclusive coverage of the weigh-ins, but predictions as well. UFC fighters Anthony Pettis, Court McGee and Alan Belcher each give their predictions for Jon Jones vs. Ryan Bader, Forrest Griffin vs. Rich Franklin and Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort.

There's also a comment from Vitor Belfort that can only raise the hair on the back of your neck:

"I know him.  He's a good man.  But in the fight he's trying to impress and [make] the fighters afraid of him.  So, I'm gonna bring the fight tomorrow.  That's what he wants, and that's what's gonna happen."

"There's no secret what I said.  You guys came here to watch a show.  Vitor talks a lot.  And that's what you're gonna see - a show."

Expect more updates from Dustin (@DGreenCSN) as we get closer to fight time.

Full transcript:

11 secs, Alan Belcher picks: "Jones and Bader...I'm going with Jonny Bones Jones on that one for sure.  If had to say, I'mma go with [Rich] Franklin.  Main event, no pick.  No, Vitor Belfort.  I'll make the pick."

24 secs, Court McGee picks: "I don't like picking fights, but I would say 51% Jones, 49% Bader.  Franklin 51%, Griffin 49.  Main event, 51% Anderson..Vitor 49%."

38 secs, Anthony Pettis picks: "It's gonna be a tough fight against Bader, but I'm going with Jones...I'mma go wit Griffin just because of size.  I think Griffin's gonna be a little bit much.  I think he trains hard and he comes forward the whole time...I' not counting Rich out though.  That' gonna be a great fight...And I'm gonna go with my boy Anderson Man.  Anderson's the champ for a reason and I think he's gonna continue his legacy tonight."

57 secs, Jones-Bader/Griffin-Franklin staredowns

1:20, Belfort on Silva: "I know him.  He's a good man.  But in the fight he's trying to impress and [make] the fighters afraid of him.  So, I'm gonna bring the fight tomorrow.  That's what he wants, and that's what's gonna happen."

1:30, Silva on Belfort (translation): "There's no secret what I said.  You guys came here to watch a show.  Vitor talks a lot.  And that's what you're gonna see - a show."
