Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit kept it clean as all fighters on the UFC 143 card made weight on Friday.

Diaz, so often the antagonist just 24 hours before a fight, clearly has plenty of respect for his rival, and it showed as they performed their duties without drama. The Strikeforce welterweight king then conceded if he has a beating coming to him, he is ready for it.

"I'm here to represent Cesar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu," Diaz said. "I'm ready to take my [butt] whooping. It's whatever."

Mike Pierce provided the humour by wearing a hairpiece to mock Josh Koscheck's blonde curly locks, while a slimmed-down Roy Nelson matched the weight of Fabricio Werdum ahead of the co-main event.
