-- T.J. O'Brien and Cole Miller got in each other's face and jawed, continuing even as Miller walked off the stage. UFC president Dana White told the two to save it for tomorrow night.

-- Charles Oliveira and Donald Cerrone also appeared to engage in smack talk while facing off, which is interesting considering that Oliveira speaks Portugese and Cerrone speaks English.

-- Jacob Volkmann started his campaign today, wearing a "Volkmann for President" shirt. I wonder what the Secret Service will have to say about that.

-- Several fighters tried to earn the award for best weigh-in wear. Eddie Wineland wore underwear that resembled denim shorts for a Tobias Bluth Funke look, while Amir Sadollah wore brightly colored shorts that caused UFC commentator to quip, "I hope no one is on acid out there." [Ed. note -- an earlier version messed up the joke on one of my favorite shows of all time. All apologies.]
