UFC Quick Quote: Chuck Liddell is on a mission

"He finds a way to win. He’s done a good job controlling his fights. He’s good on top, and he moves well on his feet. He’s elusive and hard to hit, but I’m going to see if I can catch him.... I’m on a mission to get my title back and end my career on a streak of wins. I’m in shape, and I’m going to keep throwing like I do. The knockout power is still there."

-- Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell provides with a quick and accurate scouting report of his upcoming opponent at UFC 88: "Breakthrough" on September 6, Rashad Evans. It's the main event fight at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga., earning the winner -- especially if it's Liddell -- a likely title shot against Forrest Griffin perhaps before the year is even out. It's a major contrast in styles -- Liddell is the striker and Evans is the wrestler. And it will likely come down to who can execute the proper gameplan on fight night. There's really no mystery involved ... unless "Sugar" somehow "catches" the "Iceman" first.
