Dan Hardy brought some evil to the stage in Newark, N.J. during the UFC 111 weigh-in. The Brit sported some devilish looking contacts. He's also played the role of the villian staring at the crowd. He tried to goad Georges St. Pierre by bouncing back and forth at him but the French-Canadian was unflappable.

Shane Carwin and Frank Mir both came in at the heavyweight limit of 265 pounds. The winner should get UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar during the summer.

Somehow Rory Markham missed weight at welterweight by seven pounds. His bout against Nate Diaz is a now a catchweight bout. Markham will also be fined $6,000 from his purse for missing weight.

Cagewriter's favorite fighter of the evening was Matt Riddle, who sported a sweet Ken Patera pompadour.
