The Rashad Evans Highlight Reel That Will Be Stuck in Your Head All Day [VIDEO]


(Props: FightSportTV via Reddit/MMA)

In June 2004, a young cat named Rashad Evans (just 2-0 at the time) entered an eight-man Gladiator Challenge light-heavyweight tournament, held over two nights in Colusa, California. Though the above highlight reel presents his three fights in slightly different order — the third match against Bryan Pardoe actually took place first, during the quarterfinals — it does an admirable job of showing how Evans used to utterly clown the regional competition in his early career.

Check out how he puts his hands behind his back against the hapless Hector “Sick Dog” Ramirez, or the classic Sugar-shake he does at 0:48 against Jaime Jara. Of course, Evans backed up the showboating by tagging his opponents at will and tossing them around like children. Evans was picked up for the second season of The Ultimate Fighter directly after this tournament performance, where he won the heavyweight bracket, doin’ his thang the whole time.

And FYI, the song in the highlight reel is “Sugar” by Betty Everett. Great choice, video highlight-maker.

UPDATE: Jon Jones Death Watch day 2: Jon is still dead. Some of his followers (including NippleTwister) took his body and put it in a cave, rolling a big stone in front of it. Not sure how he is going to make weigh-ins today, but I'll bet he has some kind of miracle up his sleeve.

Aha! Scarcely one hour and already I remember nothing but vague references to sugar being sweet. Take that unnamed writer.

Not a problem, I just watched Woop Gangnam Style video to get the Sugar song out of my head.
