Rashad Evans Talks Pressures Of Being UFC Champion

From MMAWeekly.com:

“You know, with being champion, there’s always stuff that’s coming at you left and right, and you’re like, damn, it didn’t need to be like this. I wish it was like the old days. It is different, because you have all these expectations, people expect you to be this way, be that way. I just want to be myself. People say, Georges is like this as a champion. I’m not Georges, Georges is Georges. I don’t need to be like him. Georges doing what he’s doing and me doing what I’m doing are two different things. But it doesn’t make either one of us less of a champion. I’m not going to add any pressure to myself to say [the fight with Lyoto Machida is] going to be this kind of fight or that kind of fight. I’m just going to go out there and fight my best. I really can’t worry about what people are going to say if they’re going to say it’s a boring fight. There’s always been harsh critics of me, saying this, that, and the other. If I listened to the fans every time, I wouldn’t be where I am right now.”
