Below is an edited version of the UFC 92 weigh-ins – courtesy of ESPN.com – featuring the main event bout between UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin and challenger Rashad Evans. The bout marks the first time two Ultimate Fighter winners have battled it out for a UFC championship.
The co-main event features UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira defending his belt against challenger and fellow Ultimate Fighter Season 8 coach Frank Mir. The winner will go on to face current heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar in 2009 for a unification of the two titles.
Wanderlei Silva and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson – following a shoving match at the weigh-ins – will meet on Saturday night for the third time in their careers. Silva won the first two match-ups decisively, both taking place in a ring under Pride rules. UFC 92 marks the first time they meet in the Octagon.
