Evans returns in February

A light heavyweight bout between Rashad Evans and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is expected to take place at UFC 157.

Globo reported the bout earlier today.

The fight will take place on February 2 as a part of the UFC’s annual Super Bowl weekend show.

Evans last competed against champion Jon Jones at UFC 145, losing via unanimous decision. He entered the fight on a four-fight winning streak and still has only two professional losses.

Both those losses have come in title fights.

Meanwhile, Nogueira is a pedestrian 3-2 in the UFC. After earning two wins to begin his UFC career, he lost to Ryan Bader and Phil Davis, then went on to defeat Tito Ortiz to get back on track.

That win came at UFC 140, almost one year ago.
