    Rashad Evans – The Underdog Keeps Rising

    ...“I definitely think the talented guy can win the fight,” said Evans. “Experience can take you so far, just like talent can take you so far. Ultimately, it comes down to what you bring on the night of the fight. What’s gonna happen when you’re in there and you take that punch, or when you’re getting frustrated? What’s your reaction going to be? If it’s better than that of your opponent, then I don’t care if you’ve got 20 years in the ring, you’re undefeated, or you’re the toughest guy out there. If you can’t react when you need to react, you’re gonna lose the fight. I don’t care who you are.”

    That’s a fighter talking, and Rashad Evans is one fighter who saves his ferocity for the Octagon. He doesn’t get upset about the critics, and he doesn’t even let them enter his airspace. He’s just doing what he does best – winning - and after a while, that’s the only thing in sports that can never be ignored.

    “I just smile because I know who I am and I know where I want to be and what I can be,” he said. “The sky’s the limit for me and people can put restrictions on what I can and can’t do – that’s fine because they’ve been saying it forever in one way or another. But I never let that weigh on how I feel and what I feel I can do. I believe I can be world champion, and one day I will be world champ – it’s just a matter of time.”
    You've got to be kidding me. That bandwagon is going to be burned and buried very soon....

    I'd love to see Rashad vs Tito in October instead of that old beaten man Shamrock. Rashad's brutal quickness and respectable stand up would give Tito a hell of a better brawl. Rashad vs Brendon Vera would be a good one too

    i kind of see him the same way that other people(not my opinion ofdiego snachez. hes someone who looses rarley in compatition but gets no credit for pulling out wins. and by pulling out wins i mean dominating the majority of his fights. not much needs to be said about his wrestling ability, and his stand up is fucking awsome. he can defend submissions, and when we see him work more on his own watch the fuck out, hell yes he is a contender

    I feel about Rashad the same way I do about Hamill. Both extremely strong and have a good base to build a fighter on. Rashad is a little further ahead at this point. I think Matt Hughes taught us that a solid and powerful wrestler can find ways to win until his game develops. More so than just a pure striker.
