Poster tweeted by Chael SonnenFormer UFC light heavyweight champion "Suga" Rashad Evans has verbally agreed to face number-nine ranked contender Chael Sonnen in the co-main event of UFC 167 November 16 in Las Vegas.

The bout has been teased in recent weeks by Evans and Sonnen, friends who both do UFC commentary for FOX Sports 1, on social media -- as seen in the fake poster (at left) that Sonnen tweeted. 

That event, which marks the UFC's 20th anniversary, is headlined by the welterweight title fight between Georges St-Pierre and heavy-handed Johny Hendricks.

Tickets for the fight night at MGM Grand Garden Arena are on sale now at Ticketmaster.
