Rashad Evans’ Manager: “It’s going to be between May and July when he comes back”

Former UFC heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans could return to the octagon as early as May after suffering a knee injury during training last week which forced him to withdraw from his UFC 128 title fight with 205 pound champion, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

Evans’ manager Malki Kawa, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“It’s not bad at all. It’s a real deep sprain that’s all. That’s all it is. He’ll actually be ready to fight in May, he’ll go back and fight anybody in May.”

“I think Rashad’s definitely serious about winning championships. So I think whatever turns out is where his decision will be made. I don’t know necessarily that he’ll drop down or go up in weight, he may still stay at 205. It’s a decision he’s going to have to make the next couple weeks. I think there’s been some talk about a real good fight for him right now, and it very well may be at 205.”

“It’s going to be between May and July when he comes back. I’d like to see him at light heavyweight and continue competing at light heavyweight, but again that’s a decision Rashad’s going to make and as he makes it we’ll keep everybody updated.”
