UFC Tampa’s Rashad Evans On Teixeira/Shogun Swap, Why He Asked To Fight Jones At UFC 197

25

MMA H.E.A.T.’s Karyn Bryant spoke via Skype with #7 UFC Light Heavyweight Rashad Evans four days before his main event fight with Glover Teixeira, set for UFC Tampa on April 16, 2016. Rashad talks about fighting Glover instead of his original opponent, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua,” the late notice of it being a five-round fight and why he believes he’ll be more successful than his last outing against Ryan Bader. “Suga” also explains why he asked to fill in for the injured Daniel Cormier against Jon Jones at UFC 197 and what kind of relationship he now has with his former training partner. He also talks about Kobe Bryant’s retirement and how it relates to thoughts about his own career.
