Evans: It’s Hard to Watch the MMA Game Pass Me By

Rashad Evans


“It’s just hard to sit back and watch the whole MMA game pass you by.”

At 35 years old, Rashad Evans is having issues sitting back while watching the MMA game pass him by.

Evans recently sat down with Brent Brookhouse for MMAjunkie and broke down how he feels about mixed martial arts in relevance to his career today.

“This has probably been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do in my entire career – just to sit out, not being able to do too much, not to do what I love to do when I’m in the gym all the time…

“This whole experience has definitely had me thinking about what it’s going to be like when it’s over or what’s next in my life. You can’t fight forever. And, when you’re young – 10 years ago, I never foreseen this coming. I knew it was going to end. I knew it was going to be over. I just didn’t know what the end would be and what it would entail. I’m far from over right now, but this is just a glimpse into my future. When I can’t fight, what’s next for me? Do I just go and have a normal life? Do I coach some guys? What do I do? It’s definitely raised some interesting questions and opened my mind to a lot of different thoughts I didn’t have before.”
