Indiana Jones and The Toothpick of Doom sounds like it would be the second worst Indiana Jones story ever told, right before Kingdom of The Crystal Skull. That has absolutely nothing to do with today’s weigh-ins in San Jose, where Gilbert Melendez and Ben Henderson will do exactly what you’re supposed to do when you are taking part in a weigh-in, and that’s weigh in.
Now it’s up to you to watch them step on the scale in the ultimate battle of mental strength and dieting.
Now that I think about it, isn’t it a bit ironic that Ben Henderson may have a toothpick in his mouth in the weigh-ins after not really eating much? And does Ben make tiny crucifixes with his toothpicks when he thinks about Jesus? Those are questions for another time. For now: Welcome to the UFC, Gil. It’s been a long time coming. Now just imagine if Eddie Alvarez was cageside for this fight…
Watch the weigh-ins that go down at 7pm EST right here. Right then.
