Evans: Cormier 'scared to text me'


For the second time in a row, Rashad Evans will step into the Octagon against a friend. Last it was Chael Sonnen and this time, Daniel Cormier. The three actually work together on FOX Sports broadcast and a very friendly, but Evans knows he has to put that aside come fight night:

“He couldn’t make 211 (pounds) five years ago or so for the Olympics, so it’s going to be hard if he’s a little bit older,” Evans said. “So it’s going to be hard, but maybe he has discipline now that he didn’t have then.”

But he hasn’t heard Cormier’s opinion on the matter – Cormier (13-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) has stopped responding to messages.

“I think he’s kind of scared to text me now,” Evans said. “But the thing about it is, you’ve got to put it on hold. You can’t be palling around, because it’s a fight. If I allow myself to think any other way than he’s someone who’s trying to separate me from consciousness, I’ve already lost.

“So Feb. 22, I don’t have no friend.”

Option 3: You're an 01'er who cares so much about being right on the interwebs you resort to grade school name calling instead of admitting you made a grade school English mistake?

So if Rashad "don't have no friend" on Feb. 22, he will have a friend on Feb. 22.

Hold him back from doing the thing that he did like 5 years ago...?I don't think Rashad is the delusional one.
