Mauricio Shogun RuaFollowing it’s return to Sydney, Australia for UFC 127 on Feb. 27, the UFC is expected to head back to Abu Dhabi for UFC 128 on March 19 with a possible main event between light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and top contender Rashad Evans.

The date and likely headliner were first reported by MMA Weekly on Wednesday after the UFC previously revealed its likely return to the Middle East.

Rua (19-4) has been sidelined since undergoing knee surgery since winning the title with a first-round TKO of Lyoto Machida in May for his third win in four fights, while Evans (15-1-1) topped Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in May for his second-straight win to earn another shot at the title.
