The official weigh in event for UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" took place tonight (Fri., Feb. 24, 2012) from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
And all was going swimmingly until Quinton Jackson, who got the biggest reception of the night, mind you, hit the scale and nearly collapsed the stage. "Rampage" weighed in at a whopping 211-pounds for his light heavyweight bout against Ryan Bader, who agreed to take 20-percent of Jackson's purse in exchanging for continuing on with the fight.
Old Quinton must not have been able to resist that two-dollar 7-Eleven fried chicken.
UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" will be headlined by a 155-pound title fight featuring number one division contender Ben Henderson, fresh off his unanimous decision win over Clay Guida, taking on reigning lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.
In addition, a welterweight clash between Jake Shields vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama is on tap, as well as a light heavyweight tilt between Quinton Jackson vs. Ryan Bader.
