Rashad Evans Willing To Fight For Bellator In 2020: "Say The Word"

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans hasn’t competed in over two years, but it appears that he is ready to get back in the cage and with Bellator.

Evans, who was on a recent edition of Morning Kombat, was asked about potentially fighting again. Host Brian Campbell mentioned a recent conversation he had with Bellator President Scott Coker.

“All they’d have to do is say the word and you’ll have me in a fight by the end of 2020,” Evans said.

Campbell revealed what he talked to Coker about when it came to a potential Evans return.

"I did have dinner with Scott Coker last week, I did bring that up Rashad. The fan in me would not let this conversation go without bringing that up," says Campbell.

The former light heavyweight champion retired from professional MMA competition while on a five-fight losing streak and he hasn’t picked up a victory in almost seven years. Evans did win the UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 92 in December of 2008 and he lost it to Lyoto Machida, who is a current member of the Bellator roster, at UFC 98.

If Evans does make his way over to Bellator, it would mark the first time he competed outside of the UFC in over 16 years.
