Ian McCall says Rashad Evans is "a dick who doesn't connect with fans"

UFC 156 flyweight Ian McCall says Rashad Evans is 'a dick who doesn't connect with fans'

By Brian Hemminger on Jan 28, 2:13p 26


UFC 156 flyweight Ian McCall is not a fan of former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans, explaining a strange interaction from his WEC days that still leaves a bad taste in his mouth. Check out what "Uncle Creepy" had to say about it below.

Well this could make for an interesting time backstage this weekend.

UFC flyweight contender Ian McCall isn't one to hold his tongue, regardless of whether or not he might make important people upset. Look no further than former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans, who McCall is clearly not a fan of.

During his appearance on MMAmania's Verbal Submission podcast, McCall randomly dropped the fact that he not only dislikes Evans, but think he's "a dick."


Quote:
"I've even had run-ins or altercations with Rashad where he was just a dick. He just doesn't connect with fans. Even my nephew was like, 'Wow, that guy's an a**hole,' and my nephew's like a kid at the time."
When asked if he could elaborate as to why exactly he has these feelings for the season two winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), McCall told a story from back in his WEC days and an off-putting interaction between himself, his brother, his nephew and Evans:


Quote:
"I was fighting in the WEC when I fought Dominick Cruz in San Diego. We were walking to the lobby and my brother and nephew were there with like Jens Pulver and a few other guys. Jens puts his arm around everybody wanting to take a picture. My nephew asked Rashad specifically and he literally stood like 2-3 feet apart from everybody, not engaging with anyone. I don't know where the picture is now but it was a really awkward picture. I've heard from a lot of people that he's just standoffish and kinda rude. You never know, he could be a great person in real life, but I'm just saying what I saw. That's what I saw."
While McCall certainly wasn't left with a good impression of "Suga," what makes this more interesting was the fact that he'll be sharing a pay-per-view main card with the current top light heavyweight contender this Saturday night (Feb. 2, 2013) from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

McCall will be opening up the PPV event with a very important battle against recent title challenger Joseph Benavidez while, two fights later, Evans will be taking on veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Hopefully, it won't be too awkward for "Uncle Creepy" backstage, especially if he has to share a locker room with the former champ.

Too bad he did that same exact dance right before Lyoto smashed em...and I literally yelled in the bar. One of the greatest moments in MMA history.

Yeah and he was 100x worse when he first got on TUF and in the UFC. I think the Machida KO knocked him down a peg or two. Thankfully.

Yeah most casual fans are beer guzzling mouth breathers. But still, Rashad doing his Roy Jones Jr impressions were shitty.
