Mainly that’s because what I really would have wanted to see was Evans versus Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, but Rampage scuttled that much anticipated encounter when he bailed on the Ultimate Fighting Championship to play B.A. Baracus in the A-Team movie.
Still, there’s no denying the skills of Evans and Silva, and it’s not really the UFC’s fault that the UFC 108 card seems jinxed, with different fights being scuttled due to injuries, notably the serious illness that has sidelined UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. Lesnar’s championship defense against Shane Carwin was originally supposed to headline UFC 106 but was postponed to UFC 108 after Lesnar’s illness, only to be scrapped again.
Watch out, Dancing with the Stars fans, the Iceman cometh. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight champion Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell, that is.
Liddell, who hasn’t fought in months, has yet to decide whether he’ll officially retire from the UFC, but for now the mixed martial arts legend will showcase his skills on the dance floor instead of the octagon. Too bad Tito Ortiz isn’t his dancing partner, heh.
