UFC 79: Doug Evans Added To Fight Card


Doug Evans will be returning to the UFC on December 29th at UFC 79 UFC Daily has confirmed. An opponent is believed to be in place but cannot be disclosed until the official bout agreement is signed.
Evans came to the UFC in June to take on rising UFC lightweight Roger Huerta on the finale of The Ultimate Fighter 5. Despite Evans controlling the first round of the bout Huerta came back strong in round 2 and was able to finish Evans off by TKO midway through the round. Prior to the loss Evans was undefeated, winning all five of his fights in the Alaska Fighting Championship promotion.
He joins a card that is headlined by a Welterweight Championship Match between Matt Serra and Matt Hughes. Other fighters rumored to be on the card are Wanderlei Silva, Josh Koscheck, Roger Huerta, Luke Caudillo, Dean Lister, and Jordan Radev. The card may also feature a lightweight title bout featuring BJ Penn and Joe Stevenson. The fight hinges on current champion Sean Sherk’s appeal in front of the California State Athletic Commission in October for a positive steroid test. If his appeal fails he will be stripped of the title and Penn will likely Stevenson for the vacant championship.

He had a pretty good showing in his first fight against Huerta, so I'm looking forward to seeing what he's got in his next fight.
