UFC light heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans and Brazilian bad boy, Thiago Silva have put pen to paper and made official their fight at UFC 108.

Evans will look to rebound from a loss for the first time in his mixed martial arts career after dropping the title to Lyoto Machida at UFC 98 back in May. As for Silva, he managed to bounce back from his own loss to Machida in January to knockout Keith Jardine in August.

UFC 108 is set to be headlined by the middleweight clash between UFC champion, Anderson “The Spider” Silva and “The Phenom” Vitor Belfort.

Cool! I hope Thiago knocks Rashad's block off!
But unfortunately I think this will be a win for Rashad......

I still don't think this fight makes a lot of sense. I'm taking Rashad though. 2nd round TKO.

Thiago just beat a decent opponent and Rashad just lost his belt, so they're kinda meeting in the middle for a fight.

Besides, Thiago is just like Rampage: Thiago just beat Jardine, and Rampage just beat Jardine. Thiago recently lost to the LHW champ, and Rampage lost to the LHW champ too (albeit a different one). It actually does make some sense I think.

Man, I finally start to like Rashard, And now he is gonna get beat!

Im still not on the ' Rashard is a devistating striker' wagon. I think he will get his 2nd loss here. Thiago said on twitter he is gunning for a submission win here, But I think he will get a TKO. Rashard by UD/SD other wise.

Anyways, This will be a great fight!
