Cagewriter - Mixed Martial Arts

The weigh-in for UFC 129 was certainly one to remember. For first time, to my recollection, a local commission official actually complained that the music playing in the arena was too loud.

Someone named "Rocky" (wouldn't give his last name) voice his displeasure on several occasions, including when Mark Hominick stepped on the scale.

The Canadian, who's challenging Jose Aldo for his UFC featherweight title, weighed in at 145.25.

By rules, he missed weight for a title fight. You have to be at the designated weight or below. There is no one-pound allowance for title fights.

Yahoo! Sports' lead MMA writer Kevin Iole checked in from Toronto. He was outraged with the way the Ontario Commission and the official, Rocky, handled the situation.

If Aldo storms to a victory, it probably won't matter. But because of Rocky's error, the door is slightly open for some potential postfight controversy.

Yahoo! Sports' Dave Meltzer also had concerns.

You can watch UFC 129 on PPV (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT) right here on Yahoo! Sports.
