“Rashad and I have been close since Season 2 of ‘The Ultimate Fighter,’ and we’ve had an amazing relationship,” UFC president Dana White stated. “It has been fun to see him succeed and grow as a fighter, become a world champion and then a respected coach for up-and-coming fighters, and then to see him retire last year. I love to see him still involved with UFC. I couldn’t be prouder of Rashad than I am right now with him being inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.”

Evans hanged up his gloves last year after his fight against former title challenger Anthony Smith. Evans will enter the UFC Hall of Fame as a member of the Modern Wing, joining Forrest Griffin (2013), B.J. Penn (2015), Urijah Faber (2017), Ronda Rousey (2018), and Michael Bisping (2019).
