Rashad Evans Won’t Fight Vitor Belfort If He Becomes Champion Saturday Night

Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans is putting friendship before title shot again after he revealed he would not fight fellow Blackzilian team mate, Vitor Belfort if “The Phenom” defeats the champion this weekend at UFC 152 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Evans, speaking via MMA Uncensored, said:

“I’m not gonna fight Belfort. I’ll figure out a fight for me. You know, Jon Jones was saying, ‘I dunno what Rashad’s doing. He’s coaching somebody to fight for the belt that he wants.’ I do want the belt, but when you compete, and you really have a love for competing, you understand what it’s really about. What’s for me is for me, and what’s for somebody else is for somebody else. I believe I’m gonna get mine, either way. I don’t see a problem with helping somebody else become champion.”
