Rashad Evans Vs. Dan Henderson Is ‘Likely’ To Take Place In The Future

UFC president Dana White shot down Rashad Evans’ recent request to meet Mauricio “Shogun” Rua during an appearance on UFC Tonight.

“No, that fight’s probably not going to happen. If any fight happens, it would probably be Rashad Evans vs. Dan Henderson,” White said.

Evans made reference to facing the fellow former UFC light heavyweight champion while appearing on FUEL TV recently. He was defeated by Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in early February.

Rua is also coming off a loss, as he was topped by Alexander Gustafsson in late 2012. Henderson, following the trend, was defeated in his previous fight, as well.

Personally, I’d prefer to see Evans vs. Rua, as I see Evans vs. Henderson being a slow, methodical match – much like Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida was.
