UFC 128 is official.
UFC 128 “Shogun vs. Evans” is scheduled to take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday, March 19 and will air live on pay-per-view at 10PM ET/7PM PT. The card will be headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Rashad Evans.
“This is the light heavyweight title fight that everyone has been waiting to see,” UFC President Dana White said. “Shogun has been on an absolute tear and proved that by knocking out Lyoto Machida to take the belt. Now he faces Rashad Evans, who is coming off back-to-back wins over Thiago Silva and Rampage Jackson and has never been hungrier to reclaim the title. With the main event and the other fights we’re putting together, we’re bringing another awesome card to New Jersey and I’m excited to get back to the East Coast.”
In another featured bout, Urijah Faber makes his UFC debut against Eddie Wineland.
