Evans returns in February
Globo reported the bout earlier today.
The fight will take place on February 2 as a part of the UFC's annual Super Bowl weekend show.
Evans last competed against champion Jon Jones at UFC 145, losing via unanimous decision. He entered the fight on a four-fight winning streak and still has only two professional losses.
Both those losses have come in title fights.
That win came at UFC 140, almost one year ago.
