Evans vs. Teixeira Set for Feb. 22

 
The UFC's first visit to Porto Alegre, Brazil will have a headliner to remember, as former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans returns to face top contender Glover Teixeira in a five-round FOX Sports 1 televised main event on Sunday, February 22.

The 35-year-old Evans is on the comeback trail after being sidelined by injury since November of 2013. Before the injury, "Suga" had won two straight over Dan Henderson and Chael Sonnen, and he expects to pick up where he left off against popular Brazilian contender Teixeira, who is looking to get back on track after hard-fought decision losses to Jon Jones and Phil Davis snapped his 20-fight win streak in 2014.
