Evans and Davis both registered at 205 pounds for their five-round, light heavyweight showdown to determine the next challenger for champion Jon Jones.
"I can't wait to test my skills against another great fighter. This is definitely something I'm going to build my career off of," Davis said after making weight.
The former champ Evans will look to hand Davis his first MMA loss and get the final word on the rising prospect.
"We both said a lot, and it's time to what's going and see who back up their words," Evans said.
