Rashad Evans faces Tim Kennedy at UFC 205 on Nov. 12, 2016 in New York City. Evans has lost two in a row and as a reminder of how far he has fallen he will fight on the undercard of the event. It will mark the first time Rashad competed on a UFC prelim, but that doesn’t seem to have phased him. He talked to FloCombat recently about it.
“I’m excited to be on this card with a bunch of killers and be a part of something so huge,” said Rashad. “I’m on the prelims that’s how stacked this card is, I’ve never been on the prelims in my life.”
“Tim and I were really cool. I have a lot of respect for what he’s done and from a service standpoint for this country. I was disappointed he was trying to talk s**t to me. We’re in the fight business, this is what we do, this is how we eat, I love to fight and I make money doing it.”
According to Tim Kennedy, his beef with Evans stems from comments that Rashad made. They were former training partners and Rashad stated recently that he always got the better of Tim. Add that on top of the fact that he actually requested Kennedy for his first fight at 185 and you can see why Tim would be a little upset.
Who do you think takes this one?
