The UFC 92 weigh-ins took place today at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
All fighters made weight. Not surprisingly, the highlight of the weigh-ins was the staredown between Wanderlei Silva and Quinton Jackson (pictured above). During the staredown Rampage said something to Wandy that prompted him to shove Jackson. Everyone up on stage seemed to be ready for it though and immediately jumped in to break them up. Wandy left the stage while Rampage proceeded to play to the crowd with a throat slash in his Santa Claus drawers. Forrest and Rashad, on the other hand, were very cordial to one another.
The weigh-in results:
- Forrest Griffin (205) vs. Rashad Evans (203)
- Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (246) vs. Frank Mir (251)
- Quinton Jackson (206) vs. Wanderlei Silva (203)
- Mustafa Al-Turk (237) vs. Cheick Kongo (233)
- C.B. Dollaway (186) vs. Mike Massenzio (184)
- Dean Lister (186) vs. Yushin Okami (185)
- Antoni Hardonk (246) vs. Mike Wessel (260)
- Reese Andy (206) vs. Matt Hamill (205)
- Brad Blackburn (170) vs. Ryo Chonan (171)
- Patrick Barry (233) vs. Dan Evensen (242)
