Who Is UFC Fighter Rashad Evans?

Learn about UFC fighter Rashad Evans from kickboxing champion Phil Nurse in this Howcast video.


My name is Kru Phil Nurse. I run a Muay Thai-style fighting gym in New York City called The Wat. We have some of the world champion fighters that trained at The Wat. If you want to find out more about The Wat, you can contact us at Today we're gonna be talking about the UFC. Rashad Evans, very very good wrestling, xling [SP] is his base, excellent wrestler, small build for him and like heavyweight and I think sometimes that has been a good thing for him, you know, he comes across a small heavy weight, lot of guys are a lot taller, and when he fought against Chuck Liddell , um, with him having that kind of an odd feel that wrestling kind of a that which is a little bit lower plus the size that he has, that he can come across not as big, he caught Chuck Liddell with a perfect pull-the-hand-right where sometimes when you are taller, fighting someone who's small, you kind of, you're up here and you don't notice the person down there, or you do, but you don't see the hands that are coming around from the other sides, and you know, Tyson was another fighter like this who was very small and these kind of motions always worked. Um, for Rashad, he knocked out Chuckledel with an overhand knock like that. I feel part of it was because of, you know, his size, another fighter who he knocked out was Shaun Simons [SP] with a high kick and the things that I find in those fights that helped him to get those knockouts were because he's a small 205, compared to the 205s and they underestimate and you know, Rashad Evans, you know he had the title, he never wanted to underestimate.
