As the old adage goes, “Time heals all wounds.” Well, it appears Rashad Evans (Pictured) will need several more days until his battered right eye recovers from the beating it took from UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones.
After dropping a convincing unanimous decision defeat to his bitter rival this past Saturday, Evans arrived to the post-fight press conference with some slight swelling around his eye. However, less than 48 hours after collecting only the second loss of his professional career, his eye is now sealed completely shut.
Despite his remodeled mug, “Suga” seems to be in good spirits.
“I went 2 UFC 145 in Atlanta and I had the best seat in the house & all I came back with was this fat eye! Wth! I hope those of u that went came back with better souvenirs than I did!” Evans tweeted accompanied with the above pic.
UFC 145 took place Saturday night inside Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
