Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans hopes to fight again before the end of the year, and unless something miraculous happens, it will be at 205 pounds.

Evans has commented recently that he would love a challenge like facing UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, which prompted everyone to assume that the former Ultimate Fighter winner might be contemplating a move down to 185 pounds.

Well, according to Evans’ manager, Glenn Robinson of Authentic Sports Management, he’s definitely interested in middleweight, but only for one fight.

“If the UFC offered him Anderson Silva at 185 right now today, he would go and fight Anderson Silva at 185. The UFC is not offering him Anderson Silva at 185 today, so that’s not something that’s going to happen. So that’s all Rashad ever meant,” Robinson clarified recently on MMAWeekly Radio.

Evans has been out of action since losing to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones at UFC 145 in April.

Now, it appears Evans is ready to get back into the hunt with a December date targeted for his return to action.

“His goal is to stay 205 and to fight the best possible 205-pounder; he’d like to fight in December. That’s his goal,” Robinson stated.

As far as potential opponents, there’s no one in particular that Evans is calling out or asking to fight. The fighters on his radar, however, are the best ones available to face, and that’s who Evans wants when his next bout is officially scheduled.

“Whoever is the best available,” said Robinson. “That’s who we’ll fight.”
