Rashad Evans Discusses His Ambassador of Quan



When Rashad Evans left Greg Jackson’s gym more than a year ago he was a fighter without a home.

Fast forward a few months and Evans had signed on with Glenn Robinson’s Authentic Sports Management, and his new manager not only found him a training camp, he built one from the ground up.

Robinson helped to found and build the Jaco Training Center and form the ‘Blackzilian’ team that Evans and several other top fighters now belong to.

Evans refers to Robinson as his ‘ambassador of quan’ in reference to the popular sports movie ‘Jerry Maguire’.

Check out what both Evans and Robinson had to say about the building of the Blackzilian camp.
