Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans told ESPN.com on Friday that he plans to return to action in December.

Evans said he is in talks with UFC officials about his return date and a potential opponent, neither of which have yet been finalized. If a December date isn't reached, Evans expects to step back in the Octagon sometime in January.

"I'm using this cut to see how far I can get (the weight) down," said Evans, who has not fought since April 21 when he dropped a unanimous decision to current 205-pound titleholder Jon Jones. "I'd like to get on the scale somewhere around 201, like (Lyoto) Machida did. I'm using this fight to get my weight down and keep it under control.

"Afterward it might be easier for me to go down to 185."

RIP bader or vera.

This would be a travesty to the rankings.

 

Evans is still easily #2.

 

I wouldn't mind seeing him vs Little Nog or Gustaf

What from the first fight made you reach that wonky conclusion?

Only fighter to take the Champ to a decision?

 

Rashad also landed some very good shots and staggered Jones twice.

No he isn't.

That's a very convincing argument.

He was just trying to survive to make it to the scorecards. If that's impressive to you that's fine, but I'd rather see guys who go in there and try to win.

LOL @ this revisionist thinking.  Rashad didn't take the champ to a decision, the champ allowed Rashad to get there.  If you don't think Jones was laying off on him, I don't know what to tell you.

Yea, the Champ totally didn't want to finish Rashad, you're right.  He really wanted to take the guy who basically did nothing but talk shit for 6 weeks to a decision.

 

That's just retarded homie.

This whole "Fear the beard" thing doesn't seem to be taking off for you the way you want it to.

Rashad did everything in his power to not engage in a war in that fight. That's why it went to a decision. Phone Post

Rashad was tentative as hell in that Jones fight, did nothing but defend. Took no risks at all
