This first installment will kick off with the torrid 2003 rematch between heated rivals Wanderlei Silva and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. But that’s just for starters, as UFC Hall of Famer Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell shows off what he can do in a ring when he battles Alistair Overeem in another 2003 showdown.

Recently signed to the UFC, international lightweight superstar Takanori Gomi will show US fans why he’s long been considered one of the best 155-pounders on the planet when he takes on Charles “Crazy Horse” Bennett.

And speaking of superstars, pound for pound great Anderson Silva collides with former UFC welterweight champ Carlos Newton, and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua squares off against former UFC heavyweight champ Kevin Randleman.

Don’t miss a second of the action on Spike TV, beginning at 10pm ET / PT.
