Has Rashad Evans lost his drive?

by Jeff Cain |

“He needs to get the fire back.  He doesn’t have the fire.  He needs to get it.”

Evans won the second season of The Ultimate Fighter as a heavyweight.  He immediately dropped down to his more comfortable weight class and went on to win the 205-pound title.  Evans eventually returned to The Ultimate Fighter as a coach in the series’ tenth season coaching opposite Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

White feels there’s been a change in the former titleholder.

“Rashad used to train like a beast.  Rashad never used to get tired.  The only time you saw Rashad get tired was when he first came into the UFC and he fought Tito (Ortiz) that first fight.  After that, he turned into an absolute beast,” said White.

Evans has lost back-to-back fights for the first time in his career.  Winning his next bout is crucial.

Rashad needs to start attacking his opponents more instead of waiting for them to trip and fall on their face. He has definitely lost the motivation to take risks and put himself on the line like he used to.

I think his camp has a little to do with this.

I don't think he's lost the drive, but I do wonder how much his current camp has to do with his performance.

Exactly. This crap about him looking lost, tired or unmotivated is ridiculous.Did these kids expect him to come out bombing against Lil Nog, just for their their enjoyment, at the cost his health?

He's great in studio and that's probably a sweet gig.

Rashad looked terrible on Sat night. I think, and this is just pure speculation, that he was just not motivated for the Lil Nog fight. I think if he were offered the Anderson fight, we'd see the same Rashad that beat Tito the 2nd time.
