Rashad Evans highly publicized break-up with Greg Jackson and his gym has dominated headlines and left many wondering who the former champion would turn to for his next training camp.
Looks like he may have found his new home.
According to a report from Fighters Only, "Suga" has packed his bags and made his way down to the "Sunshine State" to join the Imperial Athletic camp.
For those unfamiliar with that squad, it's UFC veteran Marcus Aureilo's new gym based in Boca Raton, Fla., just a few clicks north of his old stomping grounds at American Top Team in Coconut Creek.
Their jiu-jistu program also has ties with Brazilian Top Team and Antonio Silva apparently made his home there during his training camp for his fight against Fedor Emelianenko in the first round of the Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix tournament.
Seemed to work out pretty well for him. And as you can see above, it appears as though "Bigfoot" and Evans are already getting along swimmingly.
Evans also recently stated he would continue to train with select members of his former camp and a few coaches as well. He told Duane Finley he still plans on working with Trevor Wittman and his "secret weapon" is Mike Van Arsdale, a coach he says is unheralded but directly responsible for much of his success.
How do you Maniacs feel about Rashad's choice of camps? Anyone think he made the right call by going low key? Or is there a different team he should have hooked up with to get him ready for what promises to be the toughest fight of his career?
