Even though Ian McCall is in a much smaller weight class than Rashad Evans, the flyweight has some choice words for the former UFC light heavyweight champion.
“I’ve even had run-ins or altercations with Rashad where he was just a d—,” said McCall to Verbal Submission. “He just doesn’t connect with fans. Even my nephew was like, ‘Wow, that guy’s an a–hole,’ and my nephew’s like a kid at the time.”
McCall didn’t go into details about his dislike for Evans, but more might be known when the two are under the same roof for UFC 156.
The main card opens up with McCall looking to earn a flyweight championship shot when he meets Joseph Benavidez. Evans fights Antônio “Minotouro” Nogueira in the co-man event.
UFC 156 takes place this Saturday, February 2, from the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
