UFC 88 RESULTS: Chuck Liddell vs. Rashad Evans


Thanks to Sherdog.com for this match result:

Chuck Liddell vs. Rashad Evans
Round 1
Liddell shows a jab early and a wide base. Evans bounces on the tip of his toes and throws a jab of his own. Evans moves backwards as the former champion measures up his powerful right hand. Liddell moves forward with his right hand cocked back. He fires it, and it lands. Evans absorbs the shot and bounces off the cage. Evans shows good footwork in circling away from Liddell’s power. Through four minutes in the Octagon, Evans has proved to be elusive but he has not mounted any offense. Evans goes to a southpaw stance and jabs with his left. Liddell chases after his prey and backs him to the fencing. The intensity rises in the final 30 seconds but nothing is landed clean, including a vicious head kick attempt from Liddell at the horn.

Round 2
The light heavyweights trade punches to start the fourth. Evans starts to land at a frequent pace with a left hook. Liddell answers with a straight right. Evans reaches back with a right hand and delivers the knockout of the year. Liddell is his while throwing a punch and is out cold and motionless. He lies face down on the canvas before Herb Dean rolls him over.
