Complete card for UFC 86: Jackson vs. Griffin

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson will make his first UFC light-heavyweight title defense this Saturday when he takes on Forrest Griffin at UFC 86 in Las Vegas.
The card, from the Mandalay Bay Events Center, is comprised of nine bouts, with five scheduled for pay-per-view broadcast.
None of the bouts are as anticipated as Jackson versus Griffin, the latest showdown between "The Ultimate Fighter" coaches. Compared to previous seasons of the reality TV show on Spike TV, there was a lack of animosity displayed between these two wise-cracking coaches, but the title matchup here is well worth the headlining status of a pay-per-view event.
Jackson (28-6) is on a six-fight winning streak and is coming off victories over Chuck Liddell and Dan Henderson -- for both the UFC and PRIDE belts. Griffin, on the other hand (15-4) elevated himself to the top ten rankings with a surprise win over Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 76 last September. With fifteen seconds left in the fight, Griffin forced Rua to tap out to a rear naked choke.
The other featured bout at UFC 86 is between Ricardo Almeida and Patrick Cote, who are both competing for a shot at Anderson Silva's middleweight title.

Spike TV will air an hour-long preview called "Countdown to UFC 86: Jackson vs. Griffin" Monday at midnight ET. For additional previews, courtesy of Raw Vegas, please visit our videos section.
