Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans joins the latest episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer to discuss his return from retirement, why he called it a career in the first place and what led to his decision to fight again.

Evans will also address how long his comeback might actually last as he approaches his upcoming fight at Eagle FC 44 at 42 years of age. Finally, Evans will give his thoughts on the current reign of UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and whether or not he’s surpassed Georges St-Pierre as the greatest of all time in the division as well as his thoughts on Jon Jones moving to heavyweight and if he can become champion there after his long reign on top of the 205-pound division.

All this and more on the latest episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer.
