ufc 86 countdown
"Countdown to UFC 86: Jackson vs Griffin" will air tonight at midnight on Spike TV, kicking off the promotional festivities for the long-awaited 205-pound clash between Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Forrest Griffin.

It's the main event that will headline the pay-per-view (PPV) show this Independence Day weekend from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And we can certainly expect fireworks.

Here's the description for the hour-long Spike TV special:

"Now that latest Ultimate Fighter® series has determined a winner, it's time for the coaches to get ready for their own test of skills. Go behind-the-scenes with defending UFC® Light Heavyweight title holder Rampage Jackson and Forrest Griffin as they train in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, respectively."

We will more than likely also get a behind-the-scenes look at the training camps for Ricardo Almeida and Patrick Cote -- two middleweights who will go toe-to-toe in the co featured bout of the evening to possibly determine the number one contender in the 185 pound clash.
