LAS VEGAS – The fighters for Saturday’s UFC 86 at the
Mandalay Bay Events Center weighed in on Friday before several thousand fans,
despite the American Independence Day holiday.

 

The main event features Quinton Jackson defending his UFC
light heavyweight championship against inaugural Ultimate Fighter winner
Forrest Griffin. Both fighters were dead on at the 205-pound limit.

 

Although there were no real fireworks during weigh-ins,
Jackson locked Griffin’s eyes in an intense staredown, while Griffin just stood
there with his ear-to-ear Forrest grin.

 

Following the weigh-in, queried about the fight by Joe
Rogan, Griffin would only remark, “I said everything I have to say… that’s it.”

 

The champion was a little more talkative, telling Rogan, “I’m
just ready to go get it on and defend this belt.”

 

Jackson also had an added message to a throng of booing
fans. “All you haters better get used to it, I’m going to be here for a long
time.”
