Rashad Evans has lost his last two professional bouts, the first losing streak of his career. Evans know well that in order to stay in the UFC, you have to win, and although Dan Henderson is a tough fight for anyone, Evans remains optimistic:
“I’m happy about this fight [against Henderson],” Evans told ESPN.com. “Having the chance to fight somebody like Dan is a big deal, especially after not having the performance I would have liked [against Nogueira].
“It’s good to get in there with somebody like Dan and answer a lot of critics and to show everybody that I am still one of the best guys in the weight class. I couldn’t find my rhythm against Nogueira; I couldn’t find my timing. It was just one of those things. It was like I was in a mental fog.”
