Former UFC champion Rashad Evans is coming out of retirement, his manager, Ali Abdelaziz, told ESPN's Brett Okamoto.

However, he may not return to the Octagon. The 41-year-old is targeting Logan Paul and Roy Jones as possible opponents, Okamoto notes.

Evans retired in 2018 after compiling a 19-8-1 professional record and capturing the UFC light heavyweight belt in 2008.

After beginning his career 17-1-1, "Suga" lost six of his last eight fights, including his final five walks to the Octagon.

Evans has since spent time as a UFC analyst.
