“Going into that fight I wanted to make sure I negated Phil’s wrestling ability. He has a high level of wrestling and I thought I could out wrestle him so that’s what I was trying to do. That whole camp was a tough camp for me; about a week before the fight I broke three ribs sparring. I broke three ribs so I was like you know what I’m just gonna go out there and see what happens.”
During his time on the CSSSPorts show with Jon Jones, former UFC champion Rashad Evans explained his gameplan going into his last fight with Phil Davis and went on to say that he took that fight with three broken ribs.
Anyone think that may have affected his performance?
