Logan Paul’s name is guaranteed to generate a ton of revenue any time his name is attached to a pay-per-view outing. Now it seems that a UFC Hall of Famer is willing to come out of retirement to box him.

Rashad Evans is coming out of retirement according to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto. Evans retired from the cage in 2018, but he’s willing to get back to action. There are currently two people that Evans is targeting and that includes Roy Jones Jr or Logan Paul.

Okamoto tweeted out that Evans has two people who he wants to face, but this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise considering how big money fights have become all the rage in recent memory.

“Rashad Evans (@SugaRashadEvans) is coming out of retirement, per his manager Ali Abdelaziz (@AliAbdelaziz00). Discussions are already underway for his return. Not surprising, considering the climate of combat sports right now. Targeted opponents include Logan Paul and Roy Jones.”

Logan Paul just went 8 rounds with Floyd Mayweather. Many people didn’t think that would be possible, but it did happen. There is still some debate whether Money was able to knock the Maverick out on his feet, but Paul has since denied that.

We’ll have to see if Rashad Evans will get that fight with Logan Paul, but Roy Jones Jr could be game to strap on some gloves and go a few rounds with the UFC Hall of Famer.
