Rashad Evans “Can’t Retire”, Considering Return to 205
By FCF Staff
Although Rashad Evans just turned 38, has lost four straight bouts, and has dealt with injuries the last few years, the former light-heavyweight champ has no intention of retiring.
Evans, who is coming off a split decision loss to Sam Alvey in August, recently told MMA Fighting:
“I can’t retire like this. I would never know peace again in my life. Endless nights I would be left looking at the ceiling unable to accept reality.”
In addition, the former TUF winner said he’s thinking about returning to the 205 division, because Evans believes he had more “energy” fighting at that weight. “Suga’s” last win took place in 2013, when he stopped Chael Sonnen in the opening round at UFC 167.
