ProMMAnow.com (www.prommanow.com) reporter Anton Skoro recently caught up with former UFC light heavyweight champ “Suga” Rashad Evans (17-2-1) at the inaugural World Series of Fighting event in Las Vegas.
Evans, who last fought in April, dropping a unanimous decision to champ Jon Jones, talked about how he’s been keeping busy outside the Octagon. And although the 33-year-old Evans has been performing commentating duties with Fuel TV and would like to eventually move into that full time, those days are a long way off:
“Eventually I’d like to phase out and only do TV but I still have a lot of fights left in me. I’ve still got the competitive edge and want to compete and [that’s] what it’s about, and I still love the sport enough to want to compete. See, you can love the sport, but if you don’t love the sport enough to compete, then you better get out of there.”
Evans also discussed the evolution of the Blackzilians, his own progress working with the team and how excited he is to get back inside the Octagon and showcase his skills. Finally, Evans talked about the Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen match-up and how he feels about Sonnen being picked as Jones’ opposing coach on the The Ultimate Fighter.
Evans is scheduled to return to action on February 2 against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 156.
