Vitor Belfort tipped the scales at 204.2lbs for his UFC light-heavyweight title bout with Jon Jones on Friday, while Michael Bisping had no problems making weight for his clash with Brian Stann.

Belfort, stepping up from middleweight for the UFC 152 main event, was only 0.4lbs lighter than the champ. Meanwhile, at flyweight, the title clash between Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez also got the green light.

The only issue surrounded Charles Oliveira, who failed to hit the featherweight limit for his bout with Cub Swanson. Oliveira was able to cut down to 146.2lbs at the second time of asking and will not be fined.
