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.”

Evans has been looking good since he rediscovered his swagger. I think this will be an interesting fight, with the x factor being how cormier reacts to being a LHW.

It must be tough on Rashad, first he faced a former training partner, who it seemed like he was a bit of a mentor to.

Then he goes on to face two guys in a row who he works with on a regular basis and would consider friends.

Rashad believes his own bullshit. Delusion will hold him back from ever getting a title.

Cormier isn't afraid...he's doing the EXACT thing you discussed in your next sentence. How is it not obvious?

Evans takes this if he can pull the trigger. Very cool fight either way.

Rashad isnt a pushover when it comes to wrestling not to mention his Jits that cormier is gonna have to think about to. Granted DC is olympic level wrestler but this is MMA and Rashad is one of the best mma wrestlers there is... So LOL at you my friend Phone Post 3.0

Weird article.

“The thing that makes it hard, as well, is that most of the black fighters, we’re all pretty cool with each other,” he said. “We all know each other; we have that same bond and connection, because this is pretty much a white man’s sport. It’s majority white-dominated, and we’re still trying to get our footing in the whole business. When we’ve got to fight each other off first, it sucks.

I think people didn't understand the context of the word 'scared' here. Rashad obviously meant that DC is scared to keep that friend angle open, mostly because it takes away your desire to win. He said as much about himself.

Pretty obvious he didn't mean that DC is afraid of him.

Lol, sorry that little explanation doesn't save you, if Cormier makes the weight fine and performs like he has in the past he can and will take Rashad down whenever he damn well pleases. Rashad likes to move but he also plants his feet and throws combos, Cormier will grab him, pick him up, and throw him down.

Rashad cant headfuck Cormier like he did Davis, Cormier gonna be slamming Rashad like he did Barnett. Phone Post 3.0
