Although the UFC has yet to officially announce the light heavyweight bout between champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Rashad Evans, it hasn’t stopped the Gambling Gods from dropping their two cents on the subject.
The 205-pound studs are rumored to square off at UFC 129 on March 19th. The Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey is expected to host the eagerly anticipated scrap.
Shogun captured the crown in his last Octagon outting at UFC 113. He’s been firing blanks since putting Lyoto Machida to sleep in May courtesy of a third knee surgery.
After handing Quinton “Rampage” Jackson an uneventful unanimous decision loss at UFC 114, Evans earned himself first crack at Rua’s freshly minted crown.
Here are the wagering odds for Shogun vs. Evans (Courtesy of BetUS.com):
Rashad Evans +150
Mauricio “Shogun” Rua -180
