After contemplating a drop down to middleweight, former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans has decided to stay put.

"Suga" recently ended his two-fight skid by defeating Dan Henderson via split decision at UFC 161 last month and now that he's back in the winner's circle, he isn't looking to let up, as he eyes a fight against another former division champion Mauricio Rua.

But only if the Brazilian striker manages to topple Chael Sonnen in the main event of UFC Fight Night 26 on Aug. 17, 2013 in Boston, Mass.

From "UFC Tonight:"

"Rashad has nixed a move to 185, and wants to fight in October or so. He zeroed in on the winner of Sonnen vs. Shogun. He says, 選 have a lot of respect for Chael, but I'd really like to fight him."
