Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans is returning to the UFC Octagon after a year and will now fight at middleweight. Evans has flirted with the idea of moving down weight classes and he was thinking of this even when Anderson Silva was champion.
Evans is one of the most dominant wrestlers that the UFC light-heavyweight division has ever seen and he was able to out-position wrestling standouts Phil Davis and Chael Sonnen when he fought them in the Octagon.
On the next page, Evans’ opponent for his middleweight debut is announced. This should make for a great middleweight fight.
