Looks like a fight Between Rashad Evans and Anderson Silva might make more sense than not.
“I’ve been thinking about going down to middleweight lately,”
“I haven’t totally made up my mind. It’s something I’m going to think about a little more in the coming months and see where my body’s at, but I’m definitely giving it serious consideration. The odds of me moving down to 185 are 50-50 or better.”
“Yes, I would like to fight Anderson at 185,”
“Don’t get me wrong, Anderson is my favorite fighter. He’s somebody I’ve looked up to for a long time. But if I had the chance to fight Anderson, it would be a dream come true.
“I’d like to go right into a title fight, but realistically there are other contenders at 185, and to skip over everybody wouldn’t be fair. So, it would make sense for me to establish myself in the weight class and have a fight or two, whatever the case may be.”
“I will also talk to my management team as well to see what they think, whether I should move down to 185. The last thing I want to do is move down and become half the athlete I am at 205.” -Rashad Evans
