Rampage Jackson says he is ready to "end" Jon Jones' "hype" when the pair clash at UFC 135 on Saturday night.
Jackson and reigning UFC light-heavyweight champion Jones top the billing in Denver, Colorado, and the anticipation was evident as the pair stared each other down at Friday's weigh-in.
Jackson looked trim and tipped the scales at a slim 204lbs, while Jones weighed in half a pound heavier. Jones, who has never been beaten inside the Octagon - bar one disqualification, does not normally look his opponent in the eye during staredowns but Jackson managed to grab his opponent's attention with some final pre-fight rhetoric.
"I had to tell Jones and keep it real with him," Jackson said. "I'm ending his hype tomorrow."
Former welterweight champion Matt Hughes (45-8) features in the co-main event against Josh Koscheck, with Hughes coming in at 170lbs. Koscheck, who took the fight on only 19 days notice, tipped the scales at 170.5lbs.
Heavyweight Ben Rothwell, who is set for his first fight in 15 months, holds a two-pound weight advantage over opponent Mark Hunt, with the former coming in at 263lbs.
