Rashad Evans and Phil Davis are on a collision course for UFC on FOX 2, according to a report by ESPN. Evans and Davis would main event the second FOX show, which is scheduled for January 28 from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Evans and Davis were slated to first meet back at UFC 133, but Davis was forced out with a knee injury. Evans went on to defeat Tito Ortiz, but suffered a hand injury in the bout and has been on the sideline since.
“Suga” is currently the No. 1 contender to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. However, due to the injury and his rehab time, Evans (16-1-1) was unable to take a fight in December against “Bones.” Lyoto Machida stepped in and will meet Jones for the title.
Davis (9-0) is a perfect 6-0 in the UFC, including wins over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Brian Stann. “Mr. Wonderful” is a former four-time NCAA Div. I All-American wrestler while competing for Penn State University.
Would a win over Evans make Davis the new No. 1 contender at 205 pounds? Let us know in the “Comments” section below.
