Rashad cussed out by his Mom
 
Mother Knows Best
By Greg Savage (greg@sherdog.com)
Friday, 3:15 a.m. ET: Rashad Evans’ mother was not very pleased with her baby boy’s antics in the cage with Quinton Jackson. The two met in the Octagon after Jackson’s win over Keith Jardine at UFC 96 in what, at the time, appeared to be a face off for Evans’ next title defense.

Lyoto Machida ended up sliding into Jackson’s slot for a UFC light heavyweight title shot, but that did not diminish the heat that was generated in the Columbus face-to-face fracas.

And for that Mr. Evans got a call from his mom.

“She got mad at me after the ‘Rampage’ thing,” said the UFC light heavyweight champ. “She was watching on TV and she’s like, ‘Rashad, I don’t like all that cussing and s---. Rashad, you don’t get on TV cussing like that now, shoot.’ And I’m like ma, he made me mad. ‘Rashad, still, you don’t do that. People don’t want to see that s---.’”

Evans burst out laughing as he recounted the irony of the situation.

“I’m like, looking at the phone, saying, ‘Mom, you’re cussing right now.’”

That wasn’t the only time Evans has received a scolding for his actions in the cage. After he kicked Sean Salmon in the head, scoring one of the most brutal knockouts in UFC history, Evans got another call from his mom. She was none to pleased with his follow-up punches to his stunned opponent.

“I didn’t even know if he was out,” recalled the former Michigan State wrestling standout. “I thought he was dazed, but I didn’t know if he was out or not when I threw the kick. My mom saw it differently. ‘Rashad you knew damn well he was out when you hit him. I don’t like you going on top of him, hitting him. That’s just dirty.’ I’m like, ‘Ma?’”

It appears all moms have the upper hand when dealing with their sons, even if the sons happen to be among the baddest men on the planet.

HE was on a NM radio station telling the story about the Salmon fight and the way he does his mom's voice is freaking hilarious!

LOL, I didn't see anything wrong with Evans' reaction either times. So what if he cussed? Big f'ing deal! :tongue0011:

Obviously, he didn't know if Salmon was out and the ref didn't stop the fight - there's no reason he should have pulled his punches.

Yeah I would have had a problem if my son wasnt aggressive enough!! Shoot the more punches and kicks the better in my opinion! Its not like these guys are not capable and unaware of the risks associated with it! I don't got time for that sissy stuff!! I want to see BLOOD....:mad0233:
