Dana White Evaluates Rashad Evans Performance at UFC 156
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.03.2013



At a UFC 156 post-fight media scrum, UFC President Dana White spoke on the performance of former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans who lost a unanimous decision to Rogerio Nogueira in the co-main event. Here are some highlights:

White's thoughts on how Evans was contemplating retirement before this fight: "If that word even comes out of your moth in this business, it's a negative. It's bad. The fact that he even said the 'R' word shows you where his head is at and what he's thinking."

White on his relationship with Evans: "To be honest with you, Rashad and I have a good relationship. I like Rashad a lot. He's a good guy, a smart guy. But he has lost that hunger. He's lost that desire and drive, and he needs to get it back. There's no doubt about it. He needs to get hungry again."

White on how Evans is sometimes paranoid: "Back in the day, he used to get a little what's the word I'm looking for? paranoid. He was always a little paranoid. But he always did the right thing. He needs to get that fire back. He doesn't have that fire. He needs to get it. 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 fought Tito (Ortiz) in that first fight. Then after that he turned into an absolute beast. He's gotta get it back."
