I’ll be honest: I’m not really that psyched to watch UFC 108: Rashad Evans vs Thiago Silva.
Mainly that’s because what I really would have wanted to see was Evans versus Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, but Rampage scuttled that much anticipated encounter when he bailed on the Ultimate Fighting Championship to play B.A. Baracus in the A-Team movie.
Still, there’s no denying the skills of Evans and Silva, and it’s not really the UFC’s fault that the UFC 108 card seems jinxed, with different fights being scuttled due to injuries, notably the serious illness that has sidelined UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. Lesnar’s championship defense against Shane Carwin was originally supposed to headline UFC 106 but was postponed to UFC 108 after Lesnar’s illness, only to be scrapped again.
Here are some UFC 108 promotional clips posted on the official UFC YouTube channel.
Who’s your pick?
By the way, Fil-American Mark Muñoz a.k.a. The Filipino Wrecking Machine will be going up against Ryan Jensen in one of the undercard fights.
