Rashad Evans Says He’s Unsure About Cutting to Middleweight to Face Anderson Silva

January 21, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Rashad Evans recently spoke with MMAjunkie about the possibility of cutting down to middleweight for a fight against Anderson Silva. Check out the highlights:

On a potential cut to middleweight to fight Anderson Silva: “I am good at 205 (pounds), but who’s to say I’ll be the same fighter at 185, when I cut that weight and how that weight cut makes me feel. There’s a lot of variables that come into play.”

On Silva: “He’s one of my favorite fighters to watch. When my career is all said and done, I want to be able to look back and say I competed against some of the best guys ever in history. For me to get a chance to compete against Silva would be an amazing experience. I believe I can beat Anderson Silva. The build that I have is something that he would have a hard time dealing with. But first and foremost, it would be an honor itself.”

On what he would do to cut down: “Eating normally, having a day or two off, I can be 227 (pounds), almost 230, without even trying. So I would really have to get a dietician.”
