Yesterday, Rashad Evans discussed how he can defeat UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones in the main event of UFC 145. Today, it was ' turn to talk about Evans. He talks in a pre-fight video interview on UFC.com about how he just wants to win and get this over with (transcript via ESPN UK):
"Jealousy fuels Rashad, to some degree. I think it's very weak emotionally on his part. That's why I can't wait for this fight to be over.
I have no problem with him. Right now, I have my kids, I have my girl, we have our place together, I'm following my dreams. I'm doing the right things in life. I'm on the right track.
Rashad is the one who looks at this whole story like, you know, this guy's went off and created his own team and he's left the people who were there for him in the beginning. He's the one who is going through this whirlwind in life right now.
And I just can't wait to put him out of his misery and solidify me being the light-heavyweight champion and telling him to go have a seat somewhere."
There is still over a month until the fight, so I'm sure there will be rhetoric spilled by both men. I hope it gets better than stuff like this though.
