Rashad Evans (19-7) is in desperate need of a win, as he is currently on a four-fight losing skid. Since dropping to middleweight, Evans has lost two split decisions that could have gone either way. A win over Smith would do wonders in helping him get back on track.
Anthony Smith (28-13) had three KO/TKO stoppages in a row until he ran into Thiago Santos in his last fight. Smith lost via TKO and is looking to get back in the win column by defeating Evans.
The UFC 225 card from Chicago is scheduled for June 9. This fight is added to a card with some fantastic fights already announced.
