The fun time is fight night, but they make their money at the weigh ins. They went off without a hitch for Rashad, who woke up Friday morning practically on weight.

Chael and Rashad appear to be all smiles with Ariel Helwani, but once that cage door closes, it's all business.

Good luck to Rashad!
Landed in Vegas this afternoon after, amazingly, the best 5+ hr flight I have ever had. How that happened I will never know, but I am not one to question airline fate. Immediately headed over to the MGM to run into the man himself, Suga Rashad Evans, and join him for his evening workout.
Despite the large amount of fans here at the MGM, Rashad was able to maneuver his way to the workout room easily. Head down, earphones in. I think everyone could tell that he was a man with something on his mind and somewhere he needed to be.

Despite cutting weight, he still had time to bust out into a little dance. Josh Koscheck behind him did not appear to be in the dancing spirit. Hey, sometimes it hits you, sometimes it doesn't.
After his workout he was off to a movie, a nice two hour break from all the fight stuff that comes along with a fight week, especially in Vegas.
The weigh ins are tomorrow, and I will be back with shots from all the festivities aka a bunch of dudes miserable because I'm drinking water in front of them while eating a sandwich.
Yo! It's your boy Ryan Loco, and welcome to the all new Jaco Clothing blog.
Basically I sat down and said, you know what, we have way too much cool stuff going on every day and there is no reason I shouldn't take it upon myself to educate the masses. Yes you can follow both Jaco and myself on Twitter and Instagram(here & here), but limited to 140 characters or 1 filtered photo sometimes won't cut it.
What have you missed these last few days?
Eddie Alvarez won the Bellator lightweight title in an amazing five round battle with Michael Chandler. Gotta say, the belt does look nice here in the gym. (And Eddie's shirt is nice too)
Ryan LaFlare, Cezar Mutante and Vitor Belfort all were victorious at UFC Fight Night 32. The topper being Vitor's big head kick finish over Dan Henderson, a man who NEVER gets knocked out.
Gilbert Durinho, seen above punching your friend and mine, Eddie Alvarez, won gold at the No Gi jiu jitsu championships in California.
And finally, "Suga" Rashad Evans put on the finishing touches for his fight this weekend against Chael Sonnen at UFC 167. (Walkout tee available HERE) Speaking of UFC 167, I am on my way to Vegas tomorrow, and will be updating this blog with photos from all the festivities.
Time to rest up, nice five hour flight tomorrow. The things I do for you guys. Sheesh.
