UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans believes that his next opponent will be Lyoto Machida. Evans was recently on the Sherdog Radio Network where he admitted that Quinton Jackson will probably need some time off following his UFC 96 fight.

The Sun UK is also reporting that Jackson will be out of the UFC 98 card due to his jaw injury as well as a hand injury he suffered during Saturday night’s main event with Keith Jardine.

Even though Machida is going to get his shot at UFC 98, it is expected that the UFC will announce that Jackson will get the winner of the Machida vs. Evans fight.
