Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort hit the marks for their UFC 126 middleweight title bout tomorrow night in Las Vegas, and then nearly came to blows during a staredown.

In response to remarks Belfort made about Silva "wearing a mask" as a fighter, the champion did just that, donning a plain white mask and going nose-to-nose with Belfort. The two exchanged words and had to be held back by their cornermen before being separated.

All fighters successfully made weight with the exception of Mike Pierce, who weighed in one pound over the welterweight limit. Video of the weigh-ins are after the jump.
