Rashad Evans: “It’s come to a point where I like being booed now.”

Former UFC light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans will take part in one of the biggest, and most important,  fights of his MMA career on Saturday night. “Suga” ‘Shad will headline UFC on FOX 2 against Phil Davis and place himself in a bout with divisional king Jon Jones with a win.

For Evans, this is a chance to showcase his skills in front of his second home as the event takes place in Chicago at the United Center. However, Evans has become one of the most hated UFC fighters out there in terms of crowd support, as the former Michigan State University standout wrestler continually hears boos from those in attendance and very well may again even in front of his hometown fans. While that might bother some, it doesn’t have an effect on Evans.

“Win, lose or draw, I’m going to put on a good show,” Evans said in a video blog he made documenting his life leading up to this weekend’s show. “It’s come to a point where I like being booed now. I’ve been getting booed so much, if people didn’t boo me, it’d be weird. Boo me, that means you love me.”

Check out the video below and make sure to check out Evans-Davis this weekend when the card starts on FOX at 8:00 PM EST:

    I don’t get all the hate. He’s a little arrogant at times, but so are most fighters. I am with Jeremy on the Liddell incident though.

    Rashad doesn’t seem to get it. He gets boos cause he doesn’t give people a reason to cheer him.

    He got tons of talent but, he comes across to me as wishy washy. He tries to be all nice and respectful then wants to talk a lot of trash and be all thuggish. His fights aren’t all that exciting and he keeps fighting and beating more popular fighters.

    UFC keeps playing the bad guy card for him and he doesn’t really fit or embrace it and it comes across as fake and forced.

    It will only get worse if he fights and loses to Jon Jones who is far more popular and doesn’t come across as so phoney

    It’s cause he’s Black.

    Whao, slow down. I’ve got a whole theory on this, it’s just gonna take me a day to write it up properly.
