What do you think this MMA News UFC 205: Tim Kennedy vs Rashad Evans rumored for New York card video?
FloCombat reports Tim Kennedy vs Rashad Evans is targeted for UFC 205 in New York City.
Karyn Bryant says: Rashad Evans just told me the Tim Kennedy fight isn’t official yet. But he does want to be on the #UFC205 card
Rashad is currently training in Thailand. He was knocked out in his last fight against Glover Teixeira in April. This would be Evans’ middleweight debut, something he considered doing a few years back when him and Jon Jones were teammates and were both close to getting a title shot.
Kennedy has noted that he has a big fight on the horizon, but hasn’t been able to publicly confirm that it is Evans.
Kennedy’s last fight was a TKO loss to Yoel Romero in September 2014 at UFC 178. That was the card where Johnson beat Cariaso, Cerrone beat Alvarez, and McGregor TKO’d Poirier. McGregor at the time was not even slated in the co-main event position on the pay per view.
UFC 205 takes place on November 12th at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
