If you’re an old school, MMA fan, your jaw may drop when you’re reminded of the fact that Rashad Evans won the UFC’s light-heavyweight title in 2008…Ya, over seven years ago now. It doesn’t seem that long ago does it?
As Evans’ April 16th, UFC on FOX 19 bout with Glover Teixeira nears, the promotion has posted “Suga’s” title cinching, stoppage win over Forrest Griffin. The memorable bout went down at UFC 92 in December, 2008, and you can watch it below.
Evans reign as champ was a brief one, however, as Lyoto Machida KO’d him in May, 2009.
