Rashad Evans returns for the first time since losing a unanimous decision to UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones at UFC 145. The loss snapped a four-fight win streak, which included victories over Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, Tito Ortiz, and Phil Davis.

A string of injuries have kept Antonio Rogerio Nogueira out the cage since December of last year, when he defeated Tito Ortiz by first round TKO. The win ended a two-fight losing streak, suffering back-to-back unanimous decision losses to Ryan Bader and Phil Davis.
