The UFC would consider giving Rashad Evans an immediate title shot against Anderson Silva

Dana White: 'I'd consider Rashad' Evans for middleweight title shot

While the undefeated Weidman (9-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) is still in the running for a shot at UFC middleweight champion and pound-for-pound kingpin Anderson Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC), White threw another possibility into the mix: UFC 156 co-headliner and light heavyweight Rashad Evans.

“I would consider Rashad,” White said. “If Rashad won on Saturday night and wanted to go to 185, we would consider that.”

...

“A lot of people think Chris Weidman is the No. 1 contender right now,” White said. “If Rashad made a move from 205 down to 185, it’d be safe to say he’s now No. 1.”

Chris Weidman can't catch a break.

And maybe this will finally be the fuel Evans needs to make the drop.
