Rashad Evans says he has a lot of fights left in him, may face Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in February

Rashad Evans discusses a variety of topics from his future to his next fight to what he thinks of Chael Sonnen vs. Jon Jones.

ProMMANow caught up with Rashad Evans to discuss a number of things in a brief interview. Among the topics discussed were Rashad's future, his next opponent and what he thinks of Chael Sonnen vs. Jon Jones.

Rashad on a potential career in broadcasting down the road:

I got a lot of fights left in me. I've still got the competitive edge and that's what it's all about. And I still love the sport enough to want to compete. See? You can love the sport, but if you don't love the sport enough to compete you better get out of there.

On training in Florida:

It's been really good, it's been a blessing in disguise. When I started the team up, when I joined, JZ, Villefort and Jorge Santiago...we didn't know what it was going to create, but whatever happened..this synergy or whatever, everybody just came together. And now the team that has come about because of it is amazing. And I'm just happy to be a part of all of it.

On getting back in the cage:

I'm real excited. I've been learning a lot. You've got some of the best stand-up strikers with Tyron Sprong and Alistair Overeem and those guys and everybody who they bring around for their connection back in Holland, so the stand-up game has just gotten ridiculous. And the ground game, you've got Braulio and whoever he brings to train with us and you've got Vitor Belfort...the legend. So, you know, there's a lot of knowledge that's getting passed around the camp.

On Sonnen/Jones:

You know, I support Lorenzo and those guys for making their decision. What it comes down to is making the fight that people want to see. They made a fight, it's going to be exciting to see what happens this season. Chael's my boy and I respect the game that he has and I do think he has the game that it takes to get the job done.

Rashad also added that he might be back in February to fight "Lil Nog" Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
