Rashad Evans Breaks Down His Performance Vs. Jon Jones By Saying “It Sucked”

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans talked with the post-fight UFC on FUEL TV crew following his loss to Jon Jones Saturday night at UFC 145.

Evans was handed just his second loss in his career, as “Bones” used his elbows and height to keep “Suga” at bay.

It sucked, I didn’t get the job done, but it’s a lesson and you lean. It’s the fight business and this is what happens sometimes. I just have to do what I do, to come back stronger and keep my head up. I was able to catch him a couple times. I don’t think I was persistent enough on my attack. I allowed his range and stuff like that to throw me off. I hurt my foot in the second round, so that messed up my mobility a little bit. But even then, I knew the combinations I should have thrown to catch him and I didn’t do that, so it’s something I need to go back and work on.

Evans, 32 years old, had his four-fight win streak snapped at the hands of Jones, his former teammate. He holds a career record of 17-2-1.
