I thought Rashad Evans retired. He's fighting at UFC 225?

    Against Anthony Smith lol what a weird matchup but old Rashad has had his share of those lately so I guess I shouldn't be surprised

    He should have retired after losing to Daniel Kelly.

    If he loses he will retire and come back for Chuck rematch.

    Sam Alvey & Dan Kelly beat him. Old what the betting line is but I would think Rashad would be the underdog

    Antony Smith will finish Rashad for good.

    You guys remember when Glover Teixeira knocked Rashad out? I thought that was an underrated performance by Glover

    Couldn't be an easier fight for him.

    Kelly is well over the hill himself and shouldn't have presented any danger to Shad. Kelly has lost 3 in a row since beating him and two of those were first round KO losses.

    Rashad is no longer a UFC caliber fighter and just wants to go out on a win, sometimes its just not in the cards.

    Rashad fights with no purpose or passion or urgency in the octagon, has no offensive bjj and no sting in his punches, he should have retired years ago.
