UFC 155 is only a few hours away, but prior to stepping into the Octagon, all the combatants needed to step on the scales to make weight Friday afternoon.

Luckily, there were no headaches for Dana White and the UFC, as all the fighters made weight.

Above is a video showcasing the staredown between the two main-event competitors.

In the UFC 155 main event, Junior dos Santos will look to defend his title for the second time against the man he defeated to become champion, Cain Velasquez. Both men have competed once since their first encounter, which ended in a Dos Santos KO.

The champion defended his title against an overmatched Frank Mir at UFC 146 after the original opponent, Alistair Overeem, was removed due to a failed drug test. Velasquez also competed at UFC 146 fighting against Strikeforce veteran Antonio "Big Foot" Silva.

Velasquez made quick work of Silva, causing a nasty cut early in the first round and eventually finishing the fight via TKO.

In the evening's co-main event, Joe Lauzon will face Jim Miller in a lightweight tilt. Both men have found themselves stuck at the gatekeeper level in the division and will look to advance their careers at the other's expense. Both Lauzon and Miller are accomplished grappling artists, which could lead to a wild stand-up battle if they choose to avoid the ground game.

After the top of the card, the remaining fights will help sort out a clouded middleweight title picture.

Tim Boetsch was originally scheduled to face Chris Weidman, but Weidman was forced out of the fight with a shoulder injury. Now, Boetsch will face former boxer and tough-as-nails Costa Philippou.

Another rematch will take place before JDS and Velasquez throw down, as Yushin Okami will take on Alan Belcher. The two met back in 2006, with Okami picking up the unanimous-decision victory.

Kicking off the evening's festivities will be a bout between Chris Leben and former Strikeforce fighter Derek Brunson. Brunson is stepping up on short notice to fight Leben, who will be entering the Octagon for the first time since UFC 138.
