Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans informed the world Saturday night that he would be willing to face Anderson Silva if the UFC allows it.
Just minutes after Silva defeated Chael Sonnen in the main event of UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen 2, “Suga” fired off a request through Twitter.

Evans last competed against UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones earlier this year, falling by decision. Evans has said in the past the only fight he would drop to middleweight to have is against “The Spider.”
