Based On The Odds Smart Money Is On Evans, Says Liddell
By Jamie McAllister:
“I think that’s ridiculous. 5 to 1, and 6 to 1, I mean, Jon’s been great, he’s doing great, and he’s going to keep getting better, but this is a fight styles wise that’s a tougher fight for him than the ones he’s had,”
“He likes to control the distance, control where the fight was, whether it was standing or on the ground, and I think he’ll have a harder time doing that with Rashad.”
“When you can shoot in and take a guy down, you can change the distance whenever you want, you can be pressed to do something else, and it’s a lot easier to follow your game plan,”
“I think Rashad plans on pressing him. He’s got speed and power and he’s a good wrestler, so he’s able to mix it up, and mix it together.”
“If I was a betting man, with the odds, absolutely no question you have to go with Rashad. That’s for sure. It should be a pick em’ but I want to see if Rashad can do it. I really want to see how Jon reacts, I want to see him get pushed and see how he reacts.”
Chuck Liddell has his say on who he thinks is the true favorite in the UFC 145 main event in a recent interview with MMAweekly.
Liddell who has previously faced Evans feels his former opponent has all the tools to beat Jon Jones. He also sees the current betting scale as ridiculous. BetonFighting.com currently has Jones listed as a whopping -505 favorite while Evans comes back at an underdog rate of +405.
Do you agree with Liddell’s comments on how Rashad holds the advantage ? Or do you feel Jones will beat Rashad and continue his dominance over the Light Heavyweight division ?
