'I'D CONSIDER RASHAD' EVANS FOR MIDDLEWEIGHT TITLE SHOT Says Dana White

"I would consider Rashad," White said. "If Rashad won on Saturday night and wanted to go to 185, we would consider that."

White thinks Evans is as deserving as Weidman, who is 5-0 in the UFC with a recent victory over contender Mark Munoz.

"A lot of people think Chris Weidman is the No. 1 contender right now," White said. "If Rashad made a move from 205 down to 185, it'd be safe to say he's now No. 1."

“There was an offer”, said Finkelstein, the former manager of Emelianenko to Gazeta.ru. “But Fedor, and everything depended on his decision, did not agree and decided not to continue his career."
