Corey Anderson created a memory that’s worth a “thousand words” during UFC 181 weigh-ins. After jumping on the scale and weighing a half-pound under weight, Anderson stood across from his opponent Justin Jones, pulled out his phone and snapped an epic photo.
A thumbs up supported by a grin from Anderson and a displeased looking Jones was captured in the photo. The UFC President Dana White was also slightly captured smiling in the photo as he stood between the two participants.
“All weighed in and ready to bang… But first… LET ME TAKE A SELFIE!!!” Anderson wrote with the photo on Instagram.
“@danawhiteufc , my opponent, and myself. 204.5 AGAIN and ready to goo!!!”
Corey Anderson fights Justin Jones at light heavyweight in the second bout on the prelim card being aired on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET.
