Rashad Evans was lionized after reaching the pinnacle of his division and then, almost as if it never happened, was summarily dumped. Outed as an also-ran, an impostor, someone who's greatness was unwarranted and fleeting. Is that a fair? Probably not, but is it accurate? I'm not sure.
It is hard to put into the words what Wanderlei Silva was capable of in his prime. I try to put into words why this fight isn't great, even for me.
Renzo Gracie is getting a retirement fight and the UFC is about to promote a 2nd CM Punk fight, so I looked back at the time the UFC let Renzo Gracie get mauled for some sweet, sweet, oil money.
