As expected, Anderson Silva and Michael Bisping had a spirited weigh-in on Friday in London with the fighters coming nose-to-nose before security separated the two fighters ahead of their main event matchup on Saturday.
Bisping hit the scale first in front of his home crowd in England and hit the mark at 185 pounds. Silva followed and came in at 186 before taking a step toward Bisping with UFC president Dana White ready to step in between them if anything happened.
Throughout the week, Silva has refused to shake Bisping’s hand, but he extended one of his own at the weigh-ins. This time it was Bisping who scoffed at the gesture before shouting at Silva as White and other UFC officials attempted to get between the two middleweights.
The fight is now official for Saturday, but that didn’t stop Bisping from taking one final shot at Silva after he tested positive for a cocktail of illegal substances following his last fight at UFC 183.
"This man is a cheat," Bisping said while pointing his finger at Silva. "This man is a fraud and I will make you pay for your mistakes tomorrow night my friend. All the needles in your ass, all the steroids, will not help you. You p—y!"
