Shannon Briggs, who has held the heavyweight boxing title from 1997 to 1998 and the World Boxing Organization title from 2006 to 2007, started things off by saying that Quinton Jackson has a big mouth, and he's finally going to shut him up.

He's been one of the few boxers to earn wins over greats like George Foreman and Ray Mercer and is known for powerful punches.

He now has partnered with Applied Bioscience to promote Champ Organics, a line of CBD supplements.
