Evans: I have to be cocky


When Rashad Evans was at his best,  he won seven consecutive fights including winning the UFC light heavyweight title. At one point Evans and his swagger looked unstoppable and now coming off consecutive loses is looking to get back to that person that won the title:

"When I go out there and compete, I have to be cocky," Evans said. "That's how I compete. I have to have my swag out there and be like that because that's a part of me. It's a part you'd never see of me in regular life because I joke around and smile, and you don't see that side.

"But when I compete, I want the person I'm fighting to know that he shouldn't have even signed the contract to fight me. He should be embarrassed, and I want to embarrass him for doing so."

As Evans knows, that kind of attitude brings out haters. Then again, so can an overabundance of caution.

"No one wrote a book on what you should and shouldn't do," Evans said. "I'm just making it up as I go along. But at the same time, I have to be honest with myself.

I fucking hate the word swagger, but Hashad was using the word before it became cool, and when it comes out of his mouth, it becomes sexy instead of annoying.
