Nearly 20 years ago, Rashad Evans and Gray Maynard used to punch each other. A lot. And they liked it. A lot. Evans and Maynard were on the same wrestling team at Michigan State in the early 2000s and were good friends. Actually, they were more than that. They were roommates on the road, simpatico in their thinking, keeping each other entertained, helping each other make weight. Actually, they were more than roommates. Even though they didn’t know it at the time, they were kindred spirits.
