Rashad Evans will be in the booth for Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz III.
Evans is no stranger to Liddell and Ortiz. “Suga” has competed against Liddell once and Ortiz twice. Evans brutally knocked out “The Iceman” back in 2008. He would go on to earn a UFC light heavyweight title opportunity, finishing Forrest Griffin to capture the gold. As for Ortiz, Evans fought to a draw against “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” in their first encounter. “Suga” would leave no doubt in the rematch, earning a TKO victory.
