10:47 AM ET 02.04 | Dana White didn't mince words about former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans lost to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 156 on Saturday night. "To be honest with you, Rashad and I have a good relationship," White said. "I like Rashad a lot. He's a good guy, a smart guy. But he has lost that hunger. He's lost that desire and drive, and he needs to get it back. There's no doubt about it. He needs to get hungry again."

He's not lying. Evans and Rampage both seem nothing like the guys there were just a few years back when they were opposing coaches on TUF! Even though Evans appeared to be surging then and Jackson was already a shell of his former Pride self, both still appeared to have plenty in the tank. I'm upset to watch either of them fight now.

That sucks if Rashad is like that now. I didn't see his fight, but I saw Rampage's and his effort was pathetic.
