Rashad Evans & Ryan Bader Engage In The Dreaded “Twitter War”


Although their battle inside the Octagon is nearly two months away, you wouldn’t know it by following the social media accounts of Rashad Evans and Ryan Bader, the two men who will co-headline what is becoming a stacked UFC 192 pay-per-view lineup in October.

After subtle comments here-and-there during media interviews, “Suga” Rashad and “Darth” Bader have been somewhat cordial in the build-up to their October 3rd showdown at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, however this past week that all changed.

On Twitter, Bader and Evans have spent a considerable amount of time in coming up with trash-talk that meets the 140-character limit of the social media tool.

Below are some of the most recent cyber-exchanges between the two top-five ranked Light Heavyweight contenders, who, along with Daniel Cormier vs. Alexander Gustafsson for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship, and Johny Hendricks vs. Tyron Woodley, will round out the top three matches on the 10/3 scheduled event.
