We’re only days away from one of the UFC’s biggest main events ever, the light heavyweight title fight/grudge match between champion Jon Jones and Rashad Evans.
Evans is listed as a massive underdog against Jones, with some books having the champ as much as a 6-to-1 favorite. That added to their long-simmering, much-hyped feud would be enough for most people -– even top-tier combat sports athletes — to start feeling the pressure.
For Evans, as he says in the “Georgia on my Mind” video below (courtesy Authentic Sports Management), the pressure isn’t eclipsing the fact that he’s living his dream. Check out the clip to see Suga train, get in some fine-tuning with Roy Jones Jr., and give some insight into his mindset ahead of the biggest fight of his career.
