Rashad Evans: Win, lose or draw, I'm going to put on a show against Phil DavisPosted on January 25, 2012, 03:05 PM by Joey Santosus
Former Light Heavyweight Champion "Suga" Rashad Evans, who will look to reassert himself as the division's number-one contender on Saturday, discusses his opponent, Phil Davis, as well as his place in the main event. Evans says he is "honored" to headline the FOX card, and promises that, no matter the outcome, he'll put on a good show in Chicago.
"Whether I win, lose, or draw, I'm going to go out there and I'm going to put on a good show for you guys. I'm honored that they gave me that spot (in the main event). This week is change week, I'm going to change somebody's mind about me - in a good way. ... If he wants to be in my position, if he wants to be the guy to fight Jon Jones, or fight some of the guys at the upper echelon of competition, then this is what it's going to be. If he can go out there and he can handle it, if he can go out there and put something on me, then all the power to him. But, I doubt it. As a matter of fact, I highly doubt it. I don't think nobody can beat me. I'm going to go out there and show Phil Davis that when it's time to step into the cage with me - it's not a good thing. As a matter of fact, he shouldn't even have signed the contract."
