Video: Rashad Evans’ Fight Club Q&A Session from UFC 138

(Video courtesy of YouTube/StudioMMA)

Studio MMA’s Bobby Cavian was on hand at Friday’s UFC 138 Q&A with former UFC light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans and he was good enough to record the entire session for us.

In the nearly 60-minute question and answer period Mike Goldberg and Rashad touched on a number of topics from how he broke his hand and where he is in his rehab to who he think s will win against Machida and his former teammate and current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. “Suga” also gives an update on his tumultuous relationships with his former nemesis Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and his former coach Greg Jackon.

Some spoilers:

• Mike Goldberg is sensitive about all of the people who point out his mistakes

• He broke his hand with one of the first overhand rights he threw against Tito when his thumb connected with the top of Ortiz’s head

• Goldberg says Tito could make 185 if his melon were normal-sized

• He feels that Anderson Silva would beat Jones

• He says Anthony Johnson is bigger than he is and likely walks around at 220 lbs

• Says that his former college roommate Gray Maynard used to be yoked and weighed around 205 after college

• Says the Brazilians he trains with at Imperial Athletics on the Blackzilians call him “Hashad” and they call Johnson “Humble”

• Rehab is going slowly because he damaged some of the nerves and tendons in his injured hand by not moving it for so long

• He went to Rampage’s after party when he lost to Jones to pay his respect and they had a drink together, before trading barbs like old times

• The last time he spoke with Greg Jackson was the day he told him he would fight Jones soon after he won the belt

• Says he’ll fight whoever they throw in front of him while he waits for the winner of Machida and Jones

• Says Jones is “sneaky” and “grimy” for the way he told reporters he would fight Rashad in spite of the Team Jackson pact

• If he had to pick it would be Jones because of the way he betrayed him than Machida to avenge the loss

• He loves Diaz’s mindset and anger he channels into his fighting, but is riding with his teammate GSP

• Says people would REALLY hate him if he went WWE like Chael Sonnen

• Says the UFC handled the Marquardt situation fairly and that he thinks he could come back the the promotion

• Feels he’s hated by many because he beat a lot of fans’ favorite fighters

• Can’t stop being who he is, so he’s stopped trying to prove the haters wrong

• Wants to be an analyst after he’s done fighting

• Doesn’t want to fight until he can’t

• Says when fighting stops being fun, he’s done

• Thinks Chael says things just to get a reaction

• Goldie says they are looking at 35 shows next year, up from 25 this year

• Mike also says Jon Anik will be a part of the “B” broadcast team similar to the WEC team

• Rashad doesn’t feel that Condit got screwed by losing his shot at GSP to Diaz

• Evans was starstruck by Denzel Washington when he met him

• Besides impeccable impersonations of his mom and Denzel, Rashad does a spot-on Mike Tyson at the 51:17 mark

• Says he would have liked to fight Randy before he retires

• Would love to fight either Hendo or Shogun next

Mike Goldberg = Deserves a Colonel Kurtz Machete strike, much like what happened at the end of Apocalypse Now.
I hope Rashad is the guy swinging the blade!

Rashad gets so much hate, yes from tuf, but also from all his 'grab crotch kiss glove' shit he used to do that disappeared after machida. It came off as showboating and he was fighting a declining liddell or forest doing it. same can be said of bones though with him I also do not believe a word he says to boot.
Much as I hated admitting it but post meeting shad my opinion changed, post meeting bones my opinion solidified.

People don't like Hashad because he took Liddel's soul, and people love Chuck... Then he whupped Forrest... and people love Forrest

These guys are professional fighters, they are chock full of cock.. Even GSP is cocky... he is just more verbally passive about it.

These are human pit fighters... They have to have confidence...

What makes me laugh is you lugs drool over that idiotic asshole WWF twat Chael... for being 1000x what you "claim" to hate about Hashad...

I guess because most chael fans are hangers with no taste as it is.... What ever keeps ya in the closets I figure.

Way to not toot your own horn about your big legal win today. Congrats, I've been practicing for a few years now - and can say that your win isn't a small deal. I'll wear my CP "best comment" shirt to work tomorrow (probably under my work clothes) to celebrate.

I don't like the guy. Sho Nuff is right that he was cocky before he made it. Plus, there is something that seems very fake about Rashad. I don't think he is comfortable in his own skin, and seems like a closet dork trying to act cool. His trash talk has to be the worst ever! I also think he is very overrated. Despite all that, I'm sure he's a nice guy. Just not my cup of tea.
@ suckmyskywalker - not sure if you heard, but Matt Hughes and Rashad are buddies. Matt has actually defended him several times post-TUF 2, saying he misunderstood Rashad's style, and he doesn't think it is showboating, but that it is just Rashad's way, and he thinks Rashad is a humble guy. I disagree with him about Rashad being humble, and I actually agreed with Matt's original assessment of Rashad on TUF. You don't like Hughes... fine. But to call him a closet racist is fucking stupid.

A lot of people disliked Hashad (that seems to be his official name now), because he was cocky before he "made it", when he was on TUF. People hate cocky youngsters. In my eyes, his stint as a coach who actually seemed to care about the kids, how he's dealt with the slices of humble pie MMA always seems to serve up, and his demeanor these days (except the pettiness of the beef with Jones) has gone a long way to overcome that bad first impression. Coaching opposite someone as wholly narcissistic and shallow as Rampage certainly helps, though.

Yeah I met Hashad in Sydney at UFC 110, he posed for a photo(fist pumps up) and was a pretty cool guy, I think people dislike him because he kind of stalled with Rampage and Thiago and he is a tad cocky. Grey is huge, he was there with Rashad and he looked at least 190, Grey is without a doubt the coolest fighter I have met, happy to chat and a down to earth dude.

Hashad is a good guy. Fuck Matt Hughes the closet hacist.
