UFC 192: Rashad Evans Returns Vs. Ryan Bader

ufc 192

Light heavyweight contenders Rashad Evans and Ryan Bader will square off at UFC 192, officials announced.

Set for October 3 from Houston’s Toyota Center, the card does not yet have a main event.

Evans (19-3-1) hasn’t fought since a 2013 win over Chael Sonnen. He was scheduled to meet Daniel Cormier, but a knee injury knocked him out.

The former champion is 6-2 in his last eight overall.

Bader (19-4) has picked up wins in each of his last four and seemed destined for a title fight with Cormier. That, though, will go to Alexander Gustafsson once the new champion is healthy.

Following Cormier’s title victory over Anthony Johnson, “Darth” showed up at the post-fight press conference and demanded a match. The two were scheduled before officials moved Cormier to the vacant championship fight after suspending Jon Jones.
