Evans: Fight with Chael Sonnen likely for November


Last week Chael Sonnen hinted on Twitter that a bout with Rashad Evans might be next for him. Yesterday Evans confirmed the bout while on Alchemist Radio:

Evans, appearing as a guest on Alchemist Radio, said of the potential fight with Sonnen, "That fight is going to happen."

The former UFC light heavyweight champion added:

We're still talking about it, but it's definitely something the UFC wants. It's something that we want to do well. If it does happen it will happen on November 16th. Hopefully it'll be in the co-main event slot. I definitely think its co-main event worthy.

Chael cant take Evans down. Chael gets out pointed on the feet. Boring decision win with a few good flurries via Evans.

I think Chael training at Munoz's camp might be the X factor. He's making one last push, if he beats rashad, well then he can pretty much do whatever he wants fight wise.

Eh, this fight still makes no sense to me. I have zero interest whatsoever in watching it. I'd much rather see Chael sit out for a little and fight Vitor.I'd love to see Chael continue to win, but I think Rashad's size and wrestling will dictate this fight. I'd be shocked if Chael gets Rashad down.

Evans will handle this easily. Everyone that was saying David was a bad match up for Sonnen seem to forget how easily Rashad sonned him.

I think Sonnen will out Evans Evans because Evans won't try to Sonnen Sonnen so Sonnen will win by Sonnening Evans.
