Evans addresses 'worse than Tito' comments by Whitehead

He beat Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin in the span of three months and yet there's one question Rashad Evans has had to answer in every interview: What do you think of people calling you classless?

Evans showboated a bit during the win over Griffin at UFC 94 and he received rash of criticism on the web. One site actually suggested that he be penalized by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Fellow Ultimate Fighter alum Mike Whitehead poured gasoline on the fire by comparing Evans to Tito Ortiz saying that he's terrible for the sport. Evans has been consistent in saying he's unphased by the criticisim and told Cage Writer there may be an additional reason for Whitehead's anger:

"About three weeks before that I get a call from coach he says 'what do you think about Mike Whitehead coming to train with us Jackson's Gym? Well he wants to be part of the team, he's sick of it over at Couture's'. And now after the fight he says this."

Evans told Greg Jackson that he didn't feel comfortable with Whitehead joining the Albuquerque-based team because of Whitehead's strong relationship with Griffin. The current UFC light heavyweight champ said he has nothing against Whitehead and then paid him a back-handed compliment:

"Mike Whitehead is probably one of the toughest dudes you'll ever meet int he practice room. If he ever learns how to turn that practice room hero into a real fighter he'll be the truth."

Click below to hear Evans on his showboating (ESPNRadio1100 w/Cofield & Cokin):

Evans also reacts to being compared to Tito. "Sugar" responded well to Cage Writer mocking on his hip hop entrance into Georges St. Pierre's Montreal training camp during the Primetime reality show. He was also pushed to the edge during the interview when he was mocked on for being vertically challenged. There's some people questioning Evan's claim that he's 5-foot-11. 




this was what he said about rashad and rampage...Mike Whitehead disses Randy, Rashad and Rampage

LawlandOrder - Who is Mike Whitehead?

 He's an expert on the treadmill.  I don't think there's a LHW in the world that can beat him on the treadmill.

Tito along with Dana saved mma in the US, Whitehead is nothing more than a guy who hasn't lived up to his potential.

 It was kind of funny seeing Mike as a normal guy on the TUF show and then now he has the faux hawk, afflcition shirt and monarchy jewelry looking just like the guys most forum members make fun of at the mall.  He wasn't looking like that in Iowa, but I guess  that's the required look for living in Vegas.

LOL, Rashad is definitely NOT 5'11"

Anyone catch what he said when asked that? I'm too lazy to read

He does look, basically, like a clown

The greatest burns are always the stealthy ones that are disguised as compliments.

Kudos to Rashad for a wicked burn.

Hasn't Matt Hughes who trained with Whitehead for a long time basically said the same thing? I don't think this is new news, and certainly shouldn't surprise anyone, Whitehead included.

It is a burn, but it is also true. He trained forever with Hughes before that show and, I think, he was Hughes' first pick of the show! That doesn't happen unless you are tough as nails. Then he sucked in those fights. There's a disconnect there for sure.

Good job Rashad for owning Whitehead and seeing through his BS attempt to train at Jackson's

I don't think there is any doubt that it is true. Matt even commented on it during the show.


TTT for the practice room hero

Mike is a good fighter, but he isn't top level, and calling out Rashad on anything just makes him look desperate for attention.
