UFC 139: Weigh In

“Don’t count out Rashad Evans. Everybody’s assuming it will be Jones, but Rashad is a good fighter too. Rashad got a lot of criticism for his last performance [against Phil Davis], but I thought he fought really well, really solid. Jon Jones is tough, but Rashad could definitely come out winning. He will definitely put Jones on his back if he fights like he did against Phil Davis. Rashad’s the better wrestler, it’s just that Jones is awkward. But Jones wouldn’t be able to stop him taking him down for that long.”

Dan Henderson sounds off on this month’s light-heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans.

But is he right?
