UFC 92 Live Blog: Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson vs. Wanderlei Silva

Welcome to the FanHouse live blog of the UFC 92 fight between Rampage Jackson and Wanderlei Silva.

Although it's not for a belt and it's not the main event, Rampage vs. Wanderlei is probably the most anticipated fight of the entire UFC 92: The Ultimate 2008 show. There is genuine bad blood between these two guys, who fought twice previously in the Japanese Pride organization, and some of that bad blood spilled over into the weigh in yesterday.

They're both exciting fighters, and they just don't like each other. It should be a sick fight.

Rampage vs. Wanderlei is the second fight on the pay-per-view card and should start around 10:30 p.m. Eastern. The live blog begins below.
