"I felt like I wanted to put him away, and I just didn't get the chance to land those big punches," Evans said afterward. "I'm kind of disappointed about it. When you're fighting a guy as tough as Phil Davis, sometimes things like that happen."

The UFC's previous trip to Illinois, UFC 90, drew a total gate of $2.85 million and attendance figure of 15,359, headlined by a middleweight tilt between UFC champion Anderson Silva and Patrick Cote.
