UFC light heavyweight contender Rashad Evans turned down a fan for an autograph in a video uploaded over the weekend.

Can you blame him? Though Evans has a stack of signature cards on the table, the fan wants him to sign this:

It's from his one loss. In that bout, Evans lost the UFC light heavyweight belt to Machida by knockout. It's a bad memory, and he does not want to be reminded of it as he prepares to try to get that title back from Jon Jones at UFC 145.

Though Evans is often booed by fans, he still rarely turns down an autograph. In an interview with Cagewriter in 2010, he talked about it.

"If they didn't boo me, that would be strange. It's funny, I'll sign autographs all day, and everyone's my number one fan. Then they'll show me on the screen, and I'll get booed. I think, 'I just signed a million autographs. Who is booing me?'"

He can bet that one fan he turned down is joining in the boos, but since he was carrying around a picture of Evans getting knocked out, he wasn't much of a fan in the first place.

Thanks, Middle Easy.
