Maybe Rashad Evans was just trying to have some fun with the MMA world. The manager for Evans, Glenn Robinson of Authentic Sports Management, told MMAjunkie.com that “Suga” will not be trying to secure a match with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
“He has no plans to drop to 185,” Robinson informed the site via text.
Following Silva’s recent victory over Chael Sonnen, the former UFC light heavyweight champion wrote on Twitter that he wanted to meet “The Spider.” Robinson wrote that Evans was, “just saying he’s not afraid to fight anyone,” by writing that.
Evans (17-2-1) has not competed since a loss to Jon Jones for the 205-pound title earlier this year. He has won 12 of his 15 UFC fights, dropping two and fighting to a draw once.
