Rashad Evans: "There are many holes in Chuck's game"
 
New interview with Rashad Evans. He talks about his win over Chuck, the criticism he's received about his celebration and his title challenge with Griffin.

On his fight with Liddell...

"I was definitely frustrating him. He was real upset I was moving like that because he couldnít punch like he wanted to, you know?"

"After he hit me, I was like, 'Ah man, thatís it?' I knew I could take the power of his punch. When he cracked me, I was kind of circling and he dropped the right hand right on my chin and I was like, 'Man, thatís it?'"

"Honestly, I was trying to catch him with that left hook. Yeah, I was really trying to land that because Chuck always finishes with his left hand low so I knew the right combination would catch him."

"Yeah, there are many holes in Chuckís game. First off, just not bringing his hands back to home base..."

"I knew I had to be the last one throwing punches. I couldnít be the one to let him finish the combination off on me."

On a title clash with Forrest Griffin...

"If you credit a fighter with anything, you have to credit Forrestís heart."

"Iím excited to fight somebody a lot like myself. We were both Ultimate Fighters and now its Season 1 vs. Season 2."

On the criticism he's received about celebrating...

"To be honest, I didnít celebrate at all to be honest with you. I did a little inside joke with my people and that was about it. I didnít get up and run around the ring with my arms spread out like the Iceman does."

"Itís so funny how people seem to forget how every single time Chuck knocks anybody out, whether it be Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz or Babalu, this dude is running around the ring like a mad man screaming, but when I do what I do, they get mad at me and say Iím cocky for celebrating."

"If you think about it, itís like this, Iím not a white dude. My fighting style, thatís not how I move and theyíre mad at me because Iím black. I got soul or rhythm or whatever you want to call it, but thatís just how I get down."

"Everybody does something. Like Anderson Silva does his dance, Thiago Silva does the throat slash and Brandon Vera does his Hawaiian surfer dance. Everybody do they own little thing, but they donít want to say that at all. I do a little dance and theyíre like, 'Oh my God thatís excessive.'"
A lot more in the full interview:

I don't recall people criticizing him for his celebration after the fight?

Yeah, I lost all respect for him with a comment like that.

I remember some whining about his head movement during the fight but nothing about what he did after the win. I don't even remember what he did. Did he kiss a white woman or something? Because that is simply unacceptable in this day and age.

Wow. Unless this is taken out of context (as in a joke) then I really really don't like Rashad anymore. He was already kind of annoying trying to pull the racism thing on Tito too but now this? Seems like the only person who can't get over the fact that Rashad is black is Rashad himself.

I like fighters for who they are and what they have accomplished etc, i actually liked Evans but since now he has played the "because im black" card i am now a "hater".
Anderson Silva has never had such issues even before he was the monster he is now he has been well liked by MMA fans because of his skill/heart and nobility, Rashad Evans is a dick.
There are plenty of multi national, multi religious etc fighters on the Roster and some get critisim some dont but Rashad Evans is an ass because he gets about some opinions on his nipple twisting and running around the octagon.
Rashad Evans needs to take a good look at himself and wonder why some people think he is an ass.

Ever noticed it is often minorities who make the most racist comments? While those who may be of no color have been "conditioned" not to even mention anything about having pride in their Anglo Saxon heritage. Strange.:confused03:

I don't think a guy who got dominated by another guy with "many holes in his game" for the vast majority of the fight should really be throwing any stones. Heh.

I'd also like to give props today to Anthony Johnson and A. Silva, perhaps the only talented black UFC fighters worthy of any respect after this racist piece of trash Rashad's true colors emerge.

Of course Rashad, we are mad at you because you are black....
