Despite rumors circulating that he may possibly retire, Rashad Evans denied any talk in regards to hanging up the 4oz gloves in an interview with MMAJunkie.com this week.
When asked where the rumors started, Evans took partial blame but was quick to explain himself:
“I think I may have brought retirement up. Not like I was going to retire. Maybe something in the future. But it got taken to the next level. I lose a couple fights, and they're like, 'You should retire!' Fight fans, they get nuts. If you go out there and don't look sharp, they want you to retire right away. It's one of those things that make you come back hungrier and stronger. There's a lot of things that needed to settle in my life. I feel like I've settled a lot of things, and I'll compete the way I know I can compete, and that's just worry-free. My next fight is going to be a really good fight.”
Evans fights Dan Henderson on June 15th at UFC 161 in Winnipeg.
