Rashad Evans Down for Tilt with Glover Teixeira

UFC light heavyweight Rashad Evans promised he’d gotten some of his “swagger” back leading up to last night’s headlining bout with Dan Henderson and UFC 161, delivering on the statement with a hard-fought decision win over the iconic “Hendo”. Now, it looks like Evans is interested in taking on another one of the division’s toughest draws – Glover Teixeira (21-2).

“I heard Glover Teixeira wanted the winner. I’m not turning anyone down,” said Evans during an interview with Fuel TV after the fight.

However, UFC President Dana White was asked about the possible pairing and pointed to Texieira already having something lined up but wasn’t able to reveal the specifics.
