    Ian McCall says Rashad Evans is 'a dick who doesn't connect with fans'

    UFC 156 flyweight Ian McCall says Rashad Evans is 'a dick who doesn't connect with fans' - MMAmania.com

    During his appearance on MMAmania's Verbal Submission podcast, McCall randomly dropped the fact that he not only dislikes Evans, but think he's "a dick."


    "I've even had run-ins or altercations with Rashad where he was just a dick. He just doesn't connect with fans. Even my nephew was like, 'Wow, that guy's an asshole,' and my nephew's like a kid at the time."

    When asked if he could elaborate as to why exactly he has these feelings for the season two winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), McCall told a story from back in his WEC days and an off-putting interaction between himself, his brother, his nephew and Evans:


    "I was fighting in the WEC when I fought Dominick Cruz in San Diego. We were walking to the lobby and my brother and nephew were there with like Jens Pulver and a few other guys. Jens puts his arm around everybody wanting to take a picture. My nephew asked Rashad specifically and he literally stood like 2-3 feet apart from everybody, not engaging with anyone. I don't know where the picture is now but it was a really awkward picture. I've heard from a lot of people that he's just standoffish and kinda rude. You never know, he could be a great person in real life, but I'm just saying what I saw. That's what I saw."
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    Having met a lot of fighters I can say that most aren't dicks, and my bro met Rashad and he was pretty nice allegedly. But yeah, I guess it depends on the timing, Rashad could have been cutting weight, going through some shit or something.

    I don't think this means anything, I know professors that taught Rashad (he graduated same college as me) and they loved him. I always thought Rashad came across as a respectable athlete.

    Wasn't Hawkeye (mmanewsforumcontributer) a team mate of his?

    Sounds like a petty reason to call a guy out publicly.

    Doesn't matter much, first this was awhile back when WEC was still up. I didn't like Rashad then either but he's been nothing but humble recently imo. Secondly, why the fuck would you randomly call out a guy who you'll never compete against ? Just to garner yourself some attention ? Please stfu

    I don't really put much credit into what Ian McCall says.
