Dana White: Rashad Evans Has "Way Too Many Friends"

"When [Rashad Evans] said he was going to sit out and wait for Shogun; I said you're insane. This guy is injured and has to sit out, has to overcome all these things, rust and you’re just going to sit out?"

"If you truly believe that you're the best in the world, you should be ready to fight anybody because whoever you fight on the way up are guys, if you win the title, these are the guys that are coming at you anyway. You might as well stay active; you might as well make money. Fighters have a very small window of opportunity and this kid is just letting the window close."

"And now it's in this (Jon Jones) situation where this guy is my friend and that guy is my friend. Dude you have way too many friends. You need to keep the friends thing down and stop training with people. Now he's talking maybe I'll go to heavyweight, maybe I'll go to middleweight. Well if he goes to middleweight, Nate Marquardt is one of the top middleweights in the world, one of his friends. Shane Carwin is one of the best heavyweights in the world, that's one of his friends. He's got too many friends."

"Rashad at middleweight is one or two fights away (from a title shot). If we did a (Yushin) Okami vs. Rashad Evans fight and winner fights (Anderson) Silva or Georges St. Pierre. Oh but he won't fight Georges St. Pierre because they're friends."
According to Heavy.com - Rashad Evans is going to wait to see who wins between Jon Jones and Shogun Rua before deciding his next move.
