The Ultimate Fighting Championship has announced that ‘The Ultimate Fighter II’ champion and UFC light heavyweight contender Rashad Evans will make his third UFC appearance against fellow contender Jason Lambert.
Rashad Evans sports a mixed martial arts record of 8-0 and a UFC record of 3-0. The tough wrestler has victories over Stephan Bonnar, Sam Hoger and Brad Imes.
“I think he (Lambert) is a real tough, scrappy kind of guy,” said Evans, 13-0 in MMA and 6-0 in the UFC, where he not only won the heavyweight division of the second season of The Ultimate Fighter, but is coming off a win over Stephan Bonnar. “He’s not gonna lay down for anybody, so I just have to go out there and try to bring it to him.”
Jason Lambert sports a mixed martial arts record of 22-5-0 and a UFC record of 3-0. His victories in the UFC have come against Rob MacDonald, Brenden Lee Hinkle and Terry Martin.
“I’m like the little engine that could,” said Lambert, who most recently stopped Branden lee Hinkle in June. “I may be smaller than most light heavyweights, but I just won’t stop moving forward.”
