By now you’re probably aware that Chuck Liddell will be headlining the UFC’s first event in Atlanta at UFC 88. What you may not know, however, is that Liddell will likely be facing Rashad Evans in the main event. ESPN.com is reporting that the match has been agreed to and is all but signed.
Liddell was originally scheduled to battle Evans at UFC 85, which took place this past Saturday in London, England. However, he was unable to participate due to an injured hamstring and the match up was scrapped and replaced with the Matt Hughes – Thiago Silva fight.
Liddell is said to be well on his way to recovering from his hamstring injury and will be 100 percent by the time the event rolls around on September 6.
