The UFC had its Hall of Fame induction ceremony for the 2019 class last night at The Pearl at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. This time the UFC had four categories for its HOF induction.
The categories included for 2019 class are Pioneer, Modern-Era and the Fight wing. In the Modern-wing former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping and former UFC light heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans were inducted. The former champion from the United Kingdom became the middleweight champion back in 2016 when he knocked out Luke Rockhold.
On the other hand, Rashad Evans has had a terrific career in the UFC. He won the second season of the Ultimate Fighter and then went on a six-fight undefeated streak in the UFC. Throughout his career, he has beaten the likes of Michael Bisping, Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin etc.
