Report: Thiago Silva and Rashad Evans to fight in May

A UFC light heavyweight bout between Thiago Silva and Rashad Evans is expected to take place at UFC 85 in May, according to the Brazilian website Tatame.

The matchup between these two has been rumored for several weeks. The UFC has yet to make an official announcement.

Both Silva and Evans last fought on the UFC 78 card that took place this past November in Newark.

Evans, 11-0-1, won a split decision over Michael Bisping in a fight that was panned by many critics. The fight prior to Bisping, Evans went to a draw with Tito Ortiz at UFC 73 in July.

Silva, 12-0, recorded a TKO victory over Houston Alexander at 3:25 of round 1. He is 3-0 in the UFC and trains out of the famed Chute Boxe Academy in Curitiba, Brazil.
