For a time Rashad Evans was considered one of the cockiest fighters out there, but the former UFC light heavyweight champion seemed to be missing that something special as of late.
“I wouldn’t say the swag is gone,” said Evans to Bleacher Report. “I still feel it and stuff like that. For the most part, I just let the fight happen, and I go with my emotions. I can’t go out there and try to be a certain way. When it happens, it happens. I just go with the flow and whatever I feel, I feel.”
UFC 161 might not have been the biggest event of the year, but it was for Evans. He was facing former PRIDE champion Dan Henderson in the main event and both were coming off losses. For Evans, he was facing a potential third straight loss and an uncertain future.
Evans was able to take the split-decision win and now awaits word on his next challenge. He believes the win over Henderson should keep in the Top 10 of the division.
