Former light heavyweight champion Rashad Jones provided a convincing effort over Phil Davis with unanimous decision UFC win at the United Center in Chicago on Saturday.
All three ringside judges scored the fight 50-45 for Evans, who showed flashes of dominance against Davis, who is considered an up-and-coming prospect.
Evans will move on to fight Jon Jones at Philips Arena in Atlanta on April 21. Jones is one of the most recognizable UFC fighters in the world, and Evans has seen his stock rise after defeating a tough challeger in Davis.
I fought at a pretty high pace but I wanted to put him away, said Evans, after the bout. I didn't get a chance to land the big punches. When you're fighting a guy as tough as Phil Davis, that can happen.
