The UFC has a history of stacking its year-end events and 2012 appears to be no different. For example, fights like Gray Maynard-Joe Lauzon, Chris Weidman-Tim Boetsch, Chael Sonnen-Forrest Griffin, Yushin Okami-Alan Belcher, and Junior dos Santos-Cain Velasquez are already attached to UFC 155, the organization’s December 29 show in Las Vegas.
However, fans thinking the promotion is done booking the PPV portion of the card would be wrong in their assumption, as UFC President Dana White recently stated the company is considering the addition of a clash featuring former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans.
“We were talking to Rashad this week and talking about him fighting maybe in December, maybe January,” said White to a group of reporters after a press conference, later telling MMAJunkie about the possibility of UFC 155 playing home to Evans’ next bout.
Evans hasn’t fought since April when he came up short on the scorecards against 205-pound king Jon Jones. Prior to the loss he’d won four straight, holding an overall record of 17-2-1 including wins over Griffin, Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell, Phil Davis, and Quinton Jackson.
