The future of the Ultimate Fighting Championship‘s light heavyweight division will be on the line Saturday when UFC 78: Validation takes place in New Jersey.
In the main event at Newark’s Prudential Center, American â€œSugarâ€ Rashad Evans (15-0-1), who won season two of The Ultimate Fighter in the heavyweight division, battles season three light heavyweight winner Michael â€œThe Countâ€ Bisping (15-0) of England.
Bookmaker.com has Evans as the favorite at -305, while Bisping is +245.
In another light heavyweight bout, two of the most aggressive strikers in the game clash when Houston â€œThe Assassinâ€ Alexander (8-1) faces Thiago Silva (11-0).
Alexander has been the breakout performer of 2007, winning his first two UFC bouts against Keith Jardine and Alessio Sakara by knockout in less than two combined minutes. Chute Boxe’s Silva has been just as impressive in stopping James Irvin and Tomasz Drwal in his debut fights in the Octagon.
