"I'm really not in a rush to fight right now - I'm ready, but I just want to fight the best fighters," Evans said. "I know he fought Machida when he was hurt, so I can wait to fight the best Shogun. I'm not like, 'Ahhh - I need to fight! I need to fight!' There's a lot of things I can do with my time when I'm not fighting."

The other option aside from waiting for Shogun would probably be rematching Lyoto Machida and we all remember how poorly that went for Rashad the first time around.  He's in a much better place waiting out Shogun's injury than getting bumped to the back of the line with a loss to Machida.  Of course, that means the next 205 pound title fight will feature a pair of guys who have been out of action for quite a while so it may be an ugly fight.
