Former light heavyweight champions Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Lyoto Machida both tipped the scale at 205-pounds on Friday to make their main event official for tomorrow’s pay-per-view card in Detroit.
UFC President Dana White stepped between the headliners after Machida’s fist got too close to Jackson’s face, but tempers quickly cooled and “Rampage” went on to promise fans an exciting fight.
