I just want to say, a lot of people on this forum need to chill out. I see people claiming Rashad is a "Piece of Trash" now after reading this, way too go overboard people. Just because you may not see the racism he describes doesnt mean it doesnt exist. The Ice Man has many many white trash fans now. Many are ignorant and racist, dont know anything about MMA.
I'm going to use my experience watching the fight as an example. My friends and myself watched the fight at a bar in the town over, this was the town we went to highschool in many years ago so we recognized alot of the people there. During the fight there were endless boos for Rashad, some jackasses actually had 90% of the bar chanting "CHUCK CHUCK CHUCK". Unless these people have dramatically changed, they are racist just as they were years back when I went to school with and knew them.
I have heard numerous racist comments about Rashad Evans before he even fought Chuck, coming from his fight with Tito. The Tito fight had a lot of people from around here out saying some stupid racists comments. They werent "I HATE RASHAD CAUSE HE IS BLACK" They were more subtle like "Rashad sucks, Tito totally won that fight, that 'old racist word'.."
Oh did I mention we are from Rashads announced home town, where I thought the majority would be supporting him?
My point being. Sorry if It sounds like I am trying to Justify Rashads Actions, but just because some people are lucky enough to not witness the more ignorant people of this world does not mean they dont exist and arent criticizing.
