"After I beat Rashad I think I deserve the next title shot."

-- Former light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell tells that he deserves the next shot at the 205-pound crown that he used to sport if he can defeat Rashad Evans at UFC 88: "Breakthrough" in Atlanta, Ga., on September 6. "Iceman" rebounded from back-to-back losses to outpoint Wanderlei Silva on all three judges scorecards at UFC 79: "Nemesis" in December 2007. He is winless in two attempts against reigning division champion, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Lyoto Machida, Wanderlei Silva, Thiago Silva and Evans (with a win) are also among those who are in contention.
