Rashad Evans Calls Out Top Contender

Rashad Evans has set his sights on Alexander Gustafsson, targeting a 2015 fight with the No. 1 contender. Gustafsson was originally set to meet Anthony Johnson, but he has been suspended for possible domestic violence charges. Evans is a teammate of Johnson's in Florida at the Blackzilians camp.

"I've been impressed with how his development has gone," said Evans, during a recent appearance on FOX Sports 1 (thanks to MMAjunkie.com for the quotes). "I would definitely like to fight him when I return. Definitely. When I left, I was at the top and Alexander Gustafsson has been getting better with every single fight."

Evans (19-3-1) is a former UFC light heavyweight champion. He is recovering from a knee injury suffered earlier this year that knocked him out of a fight with Daniel Cormier, who meets Jon Jones for the title in January.
