‘No Plans To Drop’ To Middleweight For Rashad Evans

Go ahead and cancel all those plans to throw a huge party if Rashad Evans and UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva had decided to sign on the dotted line to face each other.

Glenn Robinson, the manager for Evans, says his client is not moving to middleweight – despite “Suga” sending out a message via Twitter that he was interested in facing Silva.

“He has no plans to drop to 185. He was just saying he’s not afraid to fight anyone,” wrote Robinson in a text message to MMA Junkie on Tuesday.

Evans last competed earlier this year, dropping a decision to former training partner Jon Jones in a bout for the UFC light heavyweight championship.

The number of worthy challengers left for Silva in his division has become a major topic after “The Spider” took down Chael Sonnen for a second time.
