His knockout of Chuck Liddell is definitely very memorable and has to be up there, but for me, his most memorable moment is when he won the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship by knocking out Forrest Griffin at UFC 92. Rashad was involved in a lot of big moments, but winning championships always tops anything else.

Without a doubt, Rashad Evans’ most memorable fight was his knockout of Chuck Liddell at UFC 88. The sound that punch made when he caught Liddell is burned into my memory. Evan’s wife screaming while the rest of the audience sat in stunned silence is also unforgettable.

The way Chuck Liddell landed and was folded over on his side was something I had never seen before. I had never thought Chuck Lidell would be knocked out that brutally, but that became a regular occurrence with the Iceman after a while. Shoulda started calling him the “put ice on it” man. Rashad has some really impressive highlights, including a headkick knockout for the ages, I’ve seen similar knockouts but there’s a reason this is in classic UFC video packages. What he did to Chuck just standing and banging with him though shows his toughness.
