Eagle FC 44: Rashad Evans returns with a unanimous decision win over Gabriel Checco

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evan’s comeback was a victorious one at Eagle FC 44 at the FLXcast Arena in Miami.

Evans (20-8-1), who was fighting for the first time since June 2018, used grappling and ground control to decision Gabriel Checco (12-6-0) in the main event.

Checco tried to use leg locks to counter the ground game of Evans but was unsuccessful. But the experience of Evans shone through as he matched maneuvers to get the 30-27, 30-27, 30-27 scores from the judges.

With the win, Evans snapped a five-fight losing skid. Checco has now lost two of his last three fights.
