Dang, all those tweets from @HeidiNorthcutt weren't a joke. No Photoshopping at all. Fellas and ladies, Chuck Liddell is ripped! RIPPED!!

Gone is that little kangaroo-pouch pot belly he used to have. In its place, abs. Outrageous. The lifestyle changes Liddell spoke about earlier this week made all the difference . . . on the scale. Let's hope it translates inside the octagon.

Liddell touched the scales at 205 at the UFC 115 weigh-ins Friday evening in Vancouver, as did his opponent, Rich Franklin. All other fighters made weight, as well, with just three fighters needing to strip down to qualify.

Mario Miranda weighed in at 187, then went bottomless to make 186, just within the one-pound limit for middleweight.

How many of you out there own 1-pound drawers? Just wondering.

Apparently Matt Wiman does too. He hit the scales at 157, then dropped his drawers and got down to 156, just within the one-pound limit for lightweight. Mac Danzig did the same.
