Win Over Hendo Puts Shift To Middleweight On Hold For Evans
“The thing is, 205 is my home. If an opportunity comes at me at 185 and it’s a good opportunity … but for the most part, I feel good at 205 and it’s hard for me to leave the 205 weight class. I’d love to get a shot at Jon Jones again. I’d love to get back to where I was and where I can be as far as going out there and being spectacular every single fight. But it’s pretty tough. You have a lot of guys here who are very talented – it’s a different landscape. I’ve got to make some adjustments to my game if I’m going to be dominant.”
Following Saturday’s win over Dan Henderson, Rashad Evans stops all talks of moving to the middleweight division.
Prior to the contest there were rumblings of Evans moving down in weight to try and mix things up in the UFC’s 185 pound weight class, but apparently a win over someone like Dan Henderson is enough to know you’re still relevant at 205.
