Rashad Evans to Phil Davis: ‘I’m Gonna Put My Hands on You Worse Than That Dude on Those Kids at Penn State’
Although Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos was as exciting a fight as a one-minute fight can be, there are many critics who thought the UFC’s premiere event on Fox left a lot to be desired. The same cannot be said of the next UFC on Fox card, which will take place on Jan. 28 and features a number of big names and title fights. Rashad Evans and Phil Davis will headline the event, with the winner having been promised a light heavyweight title shot against the winner of UFC 140’s fight between Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida.
Exciting stuff, but you can forget all that for right now. The big news on Wednesday from the UFC on Fox press conferences was Evans’ ignorance.
“I’m going to put my hands on you worse than that dude on those kids at Penn State,” Evans said amidst a an exchange with Davis.
Stay classy, Rashad. For the record, his comments come on a day in which more charges were filed against Sandusky and new victims accused him of forcing anal and oral sex on them. Simply put, it’s not a joking matter at all. And it’s certainly not a metaphor you want to use when discussing an upcoming fight.
