Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans suffered a upset unanimous decision loss against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 156. The former champion was rumored to face UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva if he had beaten Nogueira. It wasn’t in the cards, but a move to the middleweight division is something Evans will need to do at this point in his career.
“UFC 153: Silva vs. Bonnar” takes place this evening at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. Anderson Silva moves up to light heavyweight to face TUF 1 finalist Stephan Bonnar in the night’s main event.
