Quinton Jackson Just two weeks after "The Ultimate Fighter 7" season finale takes place, UFC light heavyweight Quinton Jackson (28-6 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Forrest Griffin (15-4 MMA, 6-2 UFC) -- the show's two coaches -- will headline a UFC 86 event in Las Vegas.
The report comes from Dave Meltzer's print edition of the Wrestling Observer.
As of today, though, the date hasn't officially been approved by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. However, an NSAC representative today told MMAjunkie.com (MMA blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps -- MMAjunkie.com
