COLUMBUS,
Ohio – All of the UFC 96 fighters made weight on Friday without a hitch.
All 10 bouts for Saturday’s fight card at the Nationwide Arena are now official.

 

There
were a couple of intense stare-downs, most notably between main event fighters
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Keith "Dean of Mean" Jardine
and featured heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga and Shane Carwin.

 

Asked
if all of the attention paid to a potential match-up between him and teammate
and current UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans puts him in an
uncomfortable position, Jardine responded, " That puts me in a great
position. It means we’re doing something right over there at Jackson’s."

 

Looking
as intense as ever, Jackson kept his comments simple and direct. "I’m
gonna put it all on the line. I’m putting everything on the line. I’m gonna get
wild in the cage."
