Rashad Evans has business to take care of at light heavyweight.
While “Suga” sent social media for a whirl when he posted a picture of himself squaring off with Chael Sonnen recently, it appears that Evans is not set on meeting Sonnen.
“Chael will always be an interesting fight, but we work together a lot for Fuel TV, so I don’t know if it will happen,” said Evans, in a recent interview with MMA Live. “Besides, I think Chael might be going up.”
Evans, a former UFC light heavyweight champion, feels like he needs to re-claim his status by earning a win at 205, and wants the UFC brass to sign him up, fast.
“Dana White, CALL ME! Joe Silva, CALL ME!” Evans said. “I just wanna fight the best competitors. It’s really hard to go down a weight class after you lose a fight; it doesn’t leave a good taste in your mouth. I may have to get one back at 205 before I go down to any weight class.”
Evans added that he would still love to face UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, but knows he needs to make a statement before getting a shot at “The Spider.”
