Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans is telling people he is fighting Chael Sonnen later this year.
Sonnen called out Evans for a match at UFC 167 after news broke that Wanderlei Silva would not be available. Some reports had Phil Davis taking on Sonnen, but it appears as if “Suga” is down.
Evans appeared on Alchemist Radio Tuesday night said he is fighting Sonnen on November 16 from Las Vegas.
The UFC has yet to officially announce anything, but both fighters appear to be in good standing with UFC president Dana White so it is likely to happen.
