UFC 144: 'Rampage' Jackson misses weight for Ryan Bader fight, forfeits 20-percent of purse

Quinton Jackson just couldn't resist that two dollar fried chicken at the local 7-Eleven.

The UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" weigh-in event took place tonight (Fri., Feb. 24, 2012) in Japan, and "Rampage" broke the scale when he came in at 211-pounds for his light heavyweight bout against Ryan Bader, who was on point at 205-pounds.

Jackson was interviewed by UFC color commentator Joe Rogan after weighing in but, curiously enough, his weight didn't come up during the course of the brief conversation.

Maybe Rogan was playing it safe after they beefed in the media recently.

Later, though, Jackson spoke on FUEL TV and revealed he suffered through injuries during his training camp that didn't allow him to run and do the cardiovascular conditioning his used to. And while he wouldn't reveal the details of what exactly his injury was, he did say he cut as much as he possibly could.

Thankfully, the fight will go on, as Jackson will forfeit 20-percent of his purse to Bader, who accepted the bout at a catchweight. What's a few extra pounds amongst enemies, right?
