After the stunning second round knockout of Chuck Liddell on Saturday night, UFC President Dana White announced that “Sugar” Rashad Evans will be granted a immediate title shot with Forrest Griffin, rumored to take place at UFC 92 on December 27 in Las Vegas.

White announced the news a the UFC 88 post fight press conference, but would not confirm the date.

” Lorenzo (Fertitta), Joe (Silva) and I got together and thought yeah, he deserves the title shot….How could you say, ‘No, he doesn’t deserve the shot’ after [the Liddell fight]?”
