Knees to the ground are stupid because you'll just hurt your own knee and the ground really don't feel the pain

Show me (or tell) examples where he was showboating outside of the TUF series.

And... knocking out your opponent sounds like the smart thing to do... so... I don't blame him for that. And you shouldn't either.

Are you mad at Rashad for knocking him out? Or Chuck for getting knocked out?

I think he's a good fighter, but his fighting style is just annoying. I wouldn't call it showboating, its more of baiting someone to open up by having a seizure on purpose. I guess he's just loved to be hated on.

Around my town, its definately because he's black, KOed Chuck, and is from Michigan...sad as it is. And he was kinda boring for a lil while too, not anymore, but people remember what they wanna remember.

My first post on this site was bitching about his fight with Stephan Bonnar. I've liked him since the Lambert fight, hated him before that. Mostly cuz his skin is black though.

I dont like him because he was a horribly boring wrestler. That said I always respected his ability and was impressed with his K.O. of Chuck.

Idk why people hate on Rashad Evans. He's young, talented, and is going to be real big in this sport. I don't see the showboating, and disliking a professional fighter because people find their fights to be boring is ridiculous. And even more ridiculous is disliking him because he KO'd someone's favorite fighter (Chuck Liddell).

I dislike Rashad because he's cocky and overrated IMO. The way he talks you'd think he was some wrecking machine but aside from a very nice KO of Chuck and a knocking out a can after finally catching him with the same sloppy head kick he'd been throwing all night most of his other fights haven't really impressed me.

He won close decisions over Bonnar, Hoger and Bisping. These aren't top level 205ers. Combined with a draw against Tito (who hasn't had a good win for years) and I can't see how a lot of people think he's the second best LHW in the world.

Oh and he calls himself Sugar.

i can honestly say that iv'e been in his corner since i seen him perform in the tuf series. he started out in wrestling like myself and had a below average stand up game like i had. tlking shit in a fight just comes with the territory as a fighter. ok so he show-boats a lil but who hasn't? as long as he doesn't call himself invincable then i'll continue to cheer for him. he's gotten alot better in his stand-up game but still needs to work on his stamina. i think it's due in part to muscle mass. larger framed guys seem to gas alot faster due to needing more ox to properly feed the muscles. anywho, he always shos respect to a fighter after each fight so i think that makes the pre-fight shit talking moot.


do some people not like him because he's black?? perhaps.

hell, i could name a few "other than white" guys who don't get the shine they deserve no matter how talented they are but i think it has more to do with the public not being interested , thus not having drawing potential. and sure, i'm pretty aware that the spider gets more than enough camera time but he's not seen as a black dude. that goes for most dark skinned brazilians in mma. now don't get it twisted and think i'm calling racisim in mma. it's more about drawing potential than anything. it just takes more for some to get the recognition deserved than others regardless of how good they are. two examples? kimbo and lyoto mash. both polar opposites. machita has an impressive record and is more than worthy of a tittle shot but since some people don't like his stand-offish fighting style, he's not much of a draw as someone with a less than impressive record who has a tinacious style of fighting like kimbo. kimbo draws more crowds but lyoto is the better fighter.

do some people not like hime cause he ko'd their favorite fighter? no doubt. but give respect where it's due. rashad is a good fighter with the potential to be a great fighter and i'm looking foward to watching the rest of his career.

I don't think I've ever seen a fight with Spencer that he didn't get after it the whole entire fight.
