The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Friday announced several bouts for its June 7 return to the O2 Arena in London.
Chuck Liddell, in a light heavyweight bout with fellow contender Rashad Evans, headlines UFC 85, which also features a bout pitting heavyweights Fabricio Werdum and Brandon Vera against each other. Both fights were previously announced.
Bouts made official on Friday include a highly anticipated fight between Nate Marquardt and Thales Leites, which has been scheduled twice previously, but never made it all the way to fight night.
