Rashad Evans talks about recovering from knockout

“Sugar” Rashad Evans (13-1-1) lost his UFC light heavyweight title at the hands of Lyoto Machida (15-0) at UFC 98 in May. Evans was brutally knocked out with a flurry of punches the Brazilian put on him in the second round. It was Evans’ first loss.

Evans appeared as a guest on ESPN 1100 Radio on Thursday and talked about how one bounces back from something like that. “You just accept it for what it was. I went in there and got my butt kicked, hands down (literally), got it whooped,” the former champion said.

Some fighters are never able to recover from knockout losses similar to what Evans experienced. However, Evans insists the knockout is not something he will dwell on, “I never lost before, and to accept what actually happened will help me move on further because now I accepted what happened. I watched the video, and I’ve seen images of it and I’m not haunted by it.”
