Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: Rashad Evans is Going to Hurt Shogun…Or At Least Make Him Feel Very Uncomfortable

(Video courtesy YouTube/nathanmarquardt)

It looks like Rashad Evans has taken a page out of number one UFC lightweight contender Gray Maynard‘s training manual to get ready for his upcoming light heavyweight  championship bout with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.

Evans’ training partner, Nate Marquardt revealed the former light heavyweight champ’s secret weapon he’s using to prepare for the explosiveness of Shogun.

If nothing else, Rashad will just scare Rua out of going to the ground with him and he will opt to keep the fight standing for fear of being submitted using the double-fisted chicken choke demonstrated by Evans in the clip at the top.

I liked the un-seen follow up video where Rashad did it again using his feet.

I don't know what's more hilarious, when Van Arsdale says, "Don't squeeze it too hard.", or when he declares matter of factly, "SHOGUN'S NOT DOING THIS!!!" Yeah, no shit...He's actually training.

"First off I'd like to say congratulations to Shogun, he's a great champion. I want to thank my trainer Greg Jackson and all my training partners. I want to thank my sponsors Kleenex, Aveno Hand and Body Lotion, and EAS myoplex protein to help me recover. Just give me like fifteen minutes and I'll be ready to go again."

Fight's off: Rashad's blind.

Rashad sounds like Lexington Steele.

This reminds me of the SNL parody infomercial they did for the shake weight commercial DVD

XFD. The way Rashad was screaming made me laugh my ass off.

Also, yeah, Fried Taco FTW

I know this isn't really very funny, but how come he's like "10 more seconds" and then like 2 seconds later Rashad drops the weight, and then he's like
"That's a champion!" -- Have we learned that Rashad's new strategy is tapping 8 seconds before the bell?

If the dude can't beat a shake weight, I don't see him beating Rua...

First the nipple tweaks and now this. WTF is Greg Jackson teaching his fighters? Seriously I didn't even want to open up the article after seeing the image frozen on the video

Since when has it become gay to masterweight? It's like saying it's gay to blow your best friend... Oh, wait!

Yes, this will quash those rumors about his sexuality.

Im taking a couple of those things to Afghanistan with me. I need those little shitfingers to understand they need to lift big to be big.

For reals tho, it took a lot of focus and dedication for me to write my comment above because I was laughing too hard at Fried Taco's comment.

Fried Taco FTW - CP don't forget this gem when it's Comment of the Bi-Monthly time.

When finished, it releases a cooling spray, to tell you that your workout is finished.

And I'm spent.

To get the most out of your masterbation strength training, there is no better way to strengthen your core, arms, and tri's than the Shakeweight.

Rashad rubbing it raw!

Not to be outdone, Rua has been practicing doing it one-handed and sticking a finger up his butt with the other hand. Video coming soon.
