UFC 121: Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez Weigh-in Photo Gallery

Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez weighed-in at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA, for their upcoming UFC 121 bout.

All of the fighters weighed in under their the limits of their respective weight class, so none will be forced to give up any percentage of their purse.

Fans packed the Honda Center's eastern parking lot to watch the fighters step on the scales and show their support for the UFC.

They cheered and jeered all of the fighters who weighed in, but it was Tito Ortiz who drew the most attention.

Especially boos.

The crowd seemed anxious to see his opponent, Matt Hamill, hand "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" his fourth loss in five fights.

Ortiz wore his traditional themed t-shirt, only this time it didn't say anything outright offensive.  It said, simply, "Dana is my hero!"

The fight UFC fans clamored for most, however, was the main event: heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar versus Cain Velasquez.

The UFC tends to market its heavyweight title fights the same way every time: "This is the biggest heavyweight title fight in UFC history."  Regardless of whether the public believes that about this upcoming fight or not, this fight, like all Lesnar title fights, is sure to garner a lot of attention.  Every media outlet in the region was present for the weigh-in.

"There are a hell of a lot of people here!" said one fan, anxiously waiting to take pictures of UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste. 

Lesnar, of course, drew the biggest reaction from the crowd--a giant mix of applause and hisses as he came to step on the scale.

Cain Velasquez, whom the UFC is marketing as the fighter most likely to become the first Mexican heavyweight champion, drew a great deal of support from the Southern California crowd.  

Here is a photo slideshow of all the participants scheduled to fight on the Oct. 23 card.
