Alan Belcher (17-6, 185) vs. Michael Bisping (24-5, 186) - They were both mouthing off, Bisping more than Belcher, until Blecher shoved him and Dana White stepped in. 

Jon Jones (17-1, 205) vs. Chael P. Sonnen (28-12-1, 205) - Jones was booed here even after throwing stuff to the crowd.  Jones wouldn't look at Sonnen when they squared off.  Sonnen got booed a lot doing his promo and walked off.  Jones then got booed twice as much saying nothing.
