The official weigh-in event for UFC 92: "The Ultimate 2008" today took place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
And if the scale-tipping event is any barometer of what to expect tomorrow night then the year-end blockbuster show for the promotion will indeed live up to its expectations.
Arch rivals Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Wanderlei Silva -- who thus far have been cordial during their promotion when together -- finally had the public explosion most fans were expecting.
The staredown was heated and Jackson appeared to bump "The Axe Murderer." The fiery Brazilian fired back with a two-handed shove reminiscent of their confrontation back in Pride FC years back.
Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir appears to be in the best shape of his life. And light heavyweight Forrest Griffin and Rashad Evans also looked very fit.
It should make for a great night of fights tomorrow evening.
