Liddell Vs Shogun Set For UFC 85 In June

MMAJunkie.com reported earlier today that the rumored bout between Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is now official. Both fighters have stated that the fight will happen at UFC 85 in June at London's O2 Arena.

Shogun will look to avenge the loss handed to his former teammate Wanderlei Silva at UFC 79 by Liddell and will also look to get back on the winning side of things himself after being submitted by Forrest Griffin in his UFC debut in September at UFC 76.

Liddell on the other hand, as mentioned, is coming off a decision victory against Silva, in a fight that had been waited for for a very long time.
