Will Evans-Machida Be Boring?

If Rashad’s trainer, Mike Winklejohn, has his way, it will be.

“Machida is a tough nut to crack,” Winklejohn said. “He’s a talented guy with good reactions; he steps back, causes a hole and counters real well. [The] plan is to have Rashad not be there when Machida wants to counter. We are going to counter the counter or make Machida come at Rashad.”

“I told Rashad if the crowd starts booing, that’s a good thing; we have the right gameplan,” said Winklejohn, echoing the sentiments he imparted before Evans knocked out Liddell in Atlanta.”

Awesome. At least Ghengis Con’s “Who Is He?” video of Evans is entertaining.
