Greg Jackson | "This Is A Hard Fight For Jon Jones"


By Lynn Mitchell:
Greg Jackson makes a tough decision in cornering Jon Jones against Rashad Evans.

“Rashad upset me when he kept throwing Greg under the bus and enough is enough.” states Mike Winkeljohn in an interview with MMA Fighting.  The statement was enough to convince Greg Jackson to corner Light Heavyweight Champ Jon Jones.

Two of the top 205 pound fighters in the UFC and a coach who is now willing to corner against his once prize fighter and former light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans.  The tension is high with any fight but with ex-team mates – we have a prime time drama.

Evans claims in an interview with UFC  Ultimate Insider “I made the history” referring to the history of the Jackson Camp.

“This is a hard fight for Jon Jones because Rashad knows him, He’s trained with him and anytime you know somebody’s strengths and weaknesses, it’s always a dangerous situation.”  Jones’ coach, Greg Jackson, says in a UFC.com interview.

This fight has more involved than just two fighters inside the octagon.
