Not surprisingly, UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and Rashad Evans needed to be separated as the former teammates and rivals faced off at today’s UFC 145 weigh-ins.

After the former champ Evans weighed in at 204 pounds and Jones came in at 205, the two grinded foreheads for several seconds before UFC matchmaker Joe Silva intervened.

There were no other incidents at today’s weigh-ins; however, John Makdessi came in two pounds overweight for his lightweight tilt with Anthony Njokuani, as the Tristar fighter weighed in at 158.

Makdessi will forfeit 20% of his purse to Njokuani as a result.

Here are the official weigh-in results for UFC 145, which will be hosted by Atlanta’s Philips Arena.
