It’s the fight he’s waited for since he arrived in the UFC back in 2005. On June 7, at the O2 Arena in London, England, unbeaten light heavyweight contender “Sugar” Rashad Evans gets his wish granted as he takes on former UFC 205-pound champion Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell in the main event of UFC 85: London.

This is one of those times where i hope and pray i am wrong but ............... i couldnt disagree more, i just dont see Chuck landing it, Wandy and Jardine both fought alot more aggressively than Rashas will, the guy is just gonna dance for 15

What a let down I was hoping for Liddell/Alexander. Evans will try and bore a decision out of Liddell, here's hoping he gets caught with an overhand right.

Prepare to be reminded why Rashad is undefeated in the top ten, and in the most stacked division in the UFC. Evans to DOMINATE Liddell. R2/3 Submission. You've seen how Liddell handled one TUF contestant. Now he'll have to handle another who already beat the one he lost to. TUF, Its the next generation of fighters.

I just cant see any way for rashad to take this fight. His striking isnt as good as jardines (forget the knockout of an over rated sean salamon) and if he struggled to take bisping down theres no way hes taking the ice man down. Plus chucks got a pretty solid chin so i cant seen rashad even being able to land a lucky k.o. This is pretty much a perfect match for chuck, but i think rashad will try to be elusive as possible and not get k.o'd till late in the fight.

About time they make Rashad prove he's not top 5 material. Chuck with a wicked KO

Rashad wasn't man enough to stand with Bisping so there's no way he'll stand with Liddell. Tito proved he's a better wrestler in there fight and he couldn't get Liddell down so no way Rashad will. It's going to be a boring fight though since Liddell is fighting a grappler. He's exciting when he fights strikers but now he'll be hesitant and Rashad will run away and shoot on occassion making it boring.

I'm going Liddell UD.
