After their Twitter exchange...
Rashad Evans recently spoke with MMAjunkie about the possibility of a fight with Chael Sonnen at UFC 167. Sonnen suggested it to Evans during a Twitter conversation. Check out the highlights:
On the potential fight: "I think it's something that definitely could happen. I think it's the fight that makes sense for both of us. Even though we are friends and we have a great relationship, we have the same goal, and we're in the same weight class."
On whether he could face Sonnen considering their friendship: "I think it's a difficult question, because you never know how it's going to be when you get in the cage with somebody. But having had the experience of dealing with it before, I know how to emotionally handle it better than I did before."
