UFC 153 is now officially set after all 24 fighters tipped the scale and made weight on Friday afternoon.

The weigh-ins also had a few good staredowns ranging from intense to humorous.

The main event of Saturday evening is a light heavyweight special attraction between Stephan Bonnar and UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. Their staredown was very respectful: The two men shook each other's hand and bowed respectfully.

Bonnar is a sizable underdog, but don't expect him to roll over for the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world. Bonnar told Joe Rogan, "I'm not going to do anything different than I usually do in the Octagon."

UFC 153 should offer an exciting night of fights for all who tune in.
