Evans Knocks Out Liddel, Shocks the World

Rashad Evans shocked almost everybody with his knockout win over Chuck Liddel at UFC 88. Liddel was clearly winning the fight until Evans landed that blow. For me, it was one of the five best knockouts I have ever seen. The funny thing is, it reminds me of Evan's knockout of Sean Salmon.

I am still surprised at the strategy executed by Rashad Evans. Clearly it was effective, but why he didn't try and take down Liddel still puzzles me. For Evans, it looks like a matchup with Forrest Griffin is on the horizon. If Dana White really wants to make the fans happy, he should make these two the next coaches of The Ultimate Fighter.
