Daniel Cormier vs. Rashad Evans: Early Head-to-Toe Breakdown
Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

Daniel Cormier will make his light heavyweight debut at UFC 170 when he meets former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans in the main event.

The five-round bout is booked for UFC 170 on Feb. 22 in Las Vegas.

Alexander Gustafsson leads the field for who gets the next title shot at 205 pounds, but he will have to beat Jimi Manuwa to earn that distinction. Cormier and Evans are right behind him in the pecking order, and a big win at UFC 170 could put either of their names opposite the champion's in 2014.

There is a lot on the line for the two Fox Sports analysts, and it will be one of the most intriguing matchups in all of 2014.

Here s an early preview of the important tilt which could have title implications.
