Evil defines its own version of `yank-pop` called `evil-paste-pop`,
which is by default bound to C-p in normal state. The command `yank-pop`
is remapped to `evil-paste-pop`, that's why your bindings do not work as
expected (they call `evil-paste-pop`, not `yank-pop` because of the
remapping). In contrast to `yank-pop` Evil's function knows how to
handle Evil's own paste function (the command p and P, line wise and
block paste, etc.). However, the downside is that you *must* use Evil's
paste functions (and not the normal Emacs "yank" C-y). If you prefer
Emacs paste you should remove the remapping, e.g.

  (define-key evil-normal-state-map [remap cua-paste-pop] nil)
  (define-key evil-normal-state-map [remap yank-pop] nil)

should work.

There's a customization option

  M-x customize-variable RET evil-move-cursor-back RET

Set this option to "off" (or set the variable to nil, (setq
evil-move-cursor-back nil)).
