Rashad Evans Online video Ranking: / five
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Light Heavyweight champion Rashad Evans is expected to return to the UFC Octagon against Glover Teixeira on the card of UFC Fight Night scheduled for the 22nd of February in Brazil.
The Light Heavyweight bout has been made by officials of the UFC recently. The fight card will also feature a Welterweight bout as well and will take place in Porto Alegre.
Evans has been out of action since UFC 167 and will look to reestablish himself as a major contender in the division by notching up his third consecutive win. The American was originally scheduled to take on teammate Daniel Cormier at UFC 170 in what was being billed as the biggest Light Heavyweight clash for the American in years but a leg injury forced him to sit out of the match.
