UFC veterans Rashad Evans and Chael Sonnen are set to meet at UFC 167 in a bout to determine which fighter will take a step closer to a rematch with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
After losing to Jones at UFC 145, Evans was out of action for nearly 10 months and returned with a disappointing decision loss to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
In another lackluster outing in June, Evans did enough to get back into the win column by beating Dan Henderson on the scorecards.
Evans will have plenty of eyes on him during the co-main event of UFC 167. This will be an important opportunity for the former champion to show that he's ready to make another run at the 205-pound championship.
Sonnen, meanwhile, has rebounded much more impressively from his loss to Jones.
At UFC Fight Night 26, Sonnen joined Forrest Griffin and Renato Sobral as one of only three fighters to submit Mauricio Rua. Although his next matchup is already lined up, coming against Wanderlei Silva, Sonnen has a chance to establish himself as a top five 205-pounder by beating Evans.
As this bout between Top 10 light heavyweights and Fox Sports 1 colleagues approaches, here is a look at how Evans and Sonnen match up in all areas.
