Rashad Evans (17-2-1) and Jon Jones (16-1) will have a rematch in the near future, according to Evans.
“I’m positive we will fight again at 205 [pounds], maybe in a year or so, but we’ll fight again,” said Evans on MMA Weekly.
The two previously met at UFC 145, where Jones successfully defended his light heavyweight championship with a unanimous decision victory.
Jones returns to action later this month and Evans hasn’t fought since the loss. In the meantime, Evans has been helping train Jones’ next challenger Vitor Belfort (21-9).
