5 Minutes With Rashad Evans

What’s goin’ on with you? What’s it look like for your next fight? Have they told you anything?

Naw, they haven’t told me nothing, but I haven’t stopped training yet. I just kept training after my last fight. I just got back from Montreal, helping out Georges [St. Pierre] at his base camp.

 

Where would you rank yourself among the light heavyweights in the world?

Definitely within the top five. I’m undefeated. I fought some tough guys and I’ve won. But really I see myself as number one, I just gotta go out there and prove it, ya know. Go out there and get that belt.

 

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

The worst job was being a security guard at this little hole in the wall. I had to ride the buses and everything, the metro. I had to work at this bus station and break up fights, and kids had guns and knives and shit like that. It was horrible man!

 

Okay, what’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

The best advice is…ah…somebody told me Bill Cosby said he doesn’t know the key to success but he knows the key to failure, and it’s trying to please everybody.

 

Now what’s this rumor I hear about you and Greg Jackson singing disco tunes and stuff on the road?

Aww man, me and Greg have a good time when we’re together. Greg’s favorite song is one by Michael McDonald. Funny shit. We jam to everything.

 

Well that’s a perfect lead-in to one of the FIGHT! famous two questions. First, what’s a song you jam out to when you are by yourself that no man should ever be listening to? That you would be embarrassed about if someone found out you were listening to the song?

[laughing and semi-stuttering] Uh, it’s uh, a song by George Michael. Man… can’t believe I’m saying this, but it’s Kissing a Fool.

 

And finally, Jessica Simpson, Jessica Alba, or Jessica Beal?

I gotta go with Jessica Biel, she’s got that booty! (For those scoring at home, that’s two votes Biel, one vote Alba)

 

Thanks for your time Rashad…and yes, she does have that booty, doesn’t she?
