Quoteworthy: Rashad Evans Is Still Game Planning

New, 3 comments

According to MMAWeekly:

"I don’t know how I’m going to approach this fight until probably fight day. You know it depends on how I feel when I come out. Sometimes you go out there and you see opportunities and sometimes you don’t. When you go out there and fight, if you have your mind set on just one thing and you go out there and you don’t see it then it takes you a while to recover. So I like to just react on my feet man. And if I see an opening I’m going to take it. And if I don’t, then I’ll just sit back and chill."

I'm pretty sure that Greg Jackson and Rashad's camp have come up with a basic gameplan to try and defeat Lyoto Machida at UFC 98.  You guys already know my thoughts on how I think Rashad can take Lyoto out.  However, the "I like to react onmy feet" part kind of has me raising my eyebrow!  I can't stress it enough that Evans can't afford to fight Machida the same way he fought Liddell and Griffin.  The odds would definitely not be in his favor with that strategy.
