With every Brazilian on his hit list currently unavailable, Chael Sonnen (pictured) will have to settle for Rashad Evans. During Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night 28 pre-fight show, Sonnen revealed he and “Suga” will co-headline UFC 167 on November 16. “The most well dressed man, future Hall of Famer, former world champion Rashad Evans; he will be fighting on Nov. 16 against the man with the biggest arms, the greatest charms and does all the harm. You simply know him as Chael P,” Sonnen stated. Sonnen is fresh off an impressive submission victory over former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. Immediately after last month’s win, Sonnen requested a tango with Wanderlei Silva. However, Silva won’t be available until January with an injured back. Vitor Belfort then came into the mix, but he was subsequently assigned to Dan Henderson. Sonnen then set his sights on Evans, who he called him out on Twitter the day after the two served together as analysts for UFC Fight Night 27. Although both fighters have discussed the possibility of dropping down to middleweight, this shootout will take place at light heavyweight. MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the festivities. Here is the card’s current roster: Josh Koscheck vs. Tyron Woodley Rory MacDonald vs. Robbie Lawler Chael Sonnen vs. Rashad Evans Johny Hendricks vs. Georges St-Pierre (UFC welterweight champion)
