Rashad Evans Considering Move to Middleweight, Sees Silva and Sonnen As Options

Although Rashad Evans has remained mum on his future plans since a unanimous decision loss to UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and former training partner Jon Jones at UFC 145, it’s beginning to look more and more like the former champion is middleweight bound. While “Sugar” has been non-commital in all of his statements, he recently took at look at two of the division’s best in UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva and former title challenger Chael Sonnen on MMA Live.

“Chael will always be an interesting fight, but we work together a lot with Fuel TV. So, I don’t know if it will happen,” said the Blackzilian. “I think Chael might be going up. I’m never one to back down from a fight, though,” he said.

After recently calling out the divisional king, Rashad followed up by saying, “Ultimately, I’d like to fight Anderson Silva. Then, at the same time, I would have to establish myself in the weight class, so they say. So, I don’t know.” The Ultimate Fighter winner continued by jesting ” Dana White call me! Joe Silva call me!”

While it remains unclear as to what Evans’ next movie will be, fighting at 185 lb. is looking like a viable option for the former champion.
