Evans wants Gustaffson or Teixeira next


Rashad Evans looked impressive in his first round dominating win over Chael Sonnen at UFC 167. Evans is now working his way back towards a title shot and if it were up to him, he would like a fight with one of the guys considered a number one contender:

“I want Alexander Gustafsson, even Glover Teixeira,” said Evans, during the post-fight show. “I’d love to fight some of the best guys in the division.”

Gustafsson is coming off a narrow decision loss to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, while Teixeira is scheduled to meet “Bones” sometime in early 2014.

My guess would be... a)  Vitor is a MW, unranked at LHW, and has made it clear he's waiting for the winner of Anderson/ Weidman b)  That he and Vitor are training partners and friends.

Then why not call out Vitor, he's not booked for a fight.

You say that, but A)Chael is very legit and b)Chael was ranked #6 and Rashad just completely dominated him. Rashad is def top 3 in the division, the Rashad we saw Saturday takes it to anyone imho.

LOL@ Gus beat Jones.  Davis absolutely mugged Gus. The only person who should be looking at facing Jones is Davis.  In fact Gus should have to go through Davis (or try to), instead of some 2nd tier guy.

But Sonnen is the best fighter in the whole MMA world.

Yes he should get to fight Gus. No way Gus deserves a rematch after fighting a 2nd tier guy.  Silva you better stop playing games.

I think it's pretty clear what he wants to do. “I’d love to fight some of the best guys in the division.” Better than him saying he wants to fight Hammil, Matuyshenko, and Kingsbury and then he should get a title shot.
