More than a year’s worth of trash-talking and divisional posturing between Rashad Evans and Quinton Jackson came one step closer its final culmination in caged brutality on Saturday night when both former UFC Light Heavyweight Champions stepped on the scale earlier today and, like every other athlete slated for competition at UFC 114, made weight. Surprising to some, Evans showed up slightly bigger than “Rampage” by measuring up at 206 pounds in comparison to Jackson hitting the light heavyweight mark on the head at 205.
Other notable results from the weigh-in include Todd Duffee and Mike Russow both coming in at 253 lbs., as well as Diego Sanchez and John Hathaway seeking the arguable advantage of being a single digit heavy by mirroring each other at 171 pounds.
