Shogun vs. Chuck UFC 85 - June 14, 2008

As reported originally by MMA Junkie. I can't wait for this one. Rua should have took the hint from his fight against Forrest Griffen and dropped down a division so he can go it with fighters more his size. Regardless, it will be a big payout for both of them. Go Chuck!.

Although the UFC reportedly considered Brock Lesnar for the main event, a UFC 85 event set for June 14 in London will instead feature a headline light-heavyweight bout between Chuck Liddell (21-5 MMA, 16-4 UFC) and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (16-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC).

UFC 85 takes place at London’s O2 Arena, the same 16,000-capacity venue that hosted this past September’s UFC 75 event.


  1. What's that photo from? Looks like Chuck has the Australian flag over him.

  2. HA! Shogun could very well come out of this fight on the losing end. This is going to be a good fight. I am glad the UFC brass didn't give him Jardine again. Jardine beat hime once, and if he beat Chuck again it would derail Liddell/Jackson III if that is indeed the plan.

    Hopefully they still put Lesnar on this card. I'm not sure what HW would volunteer to face him though at this point. He laid a beating on Mir up until getting submitted. Who is left in the division that isn't a near contender? Maybe Tim will step up. Cro Cop? Yikes. That would be a bad fight for Mirko. Lesnar isn't Bob Sapp!

  3. It looks like he just won a World Series of Poker.
    I'm glad the UFC doesn't spoon feed their top fighters as a rule.
