On Sherdog’s Savage Dog Show, Jon Jones’ trainer Greg Jackson talked about his victory at UFC 145. He revealed he was happy about his top fighter retaining the title, but was upset with the very public situation that involved former team member Rashad Evans, whom Jones defeated via unanimous decision.

“It was a bittersweet night. I’m glad Jon won, but I’m just sad about the whole situation. It’s nice to just kind of move on and be done with the whole thing. …. I went up after the fight and shook [Rashad Evans’] hand, and we kind of patted each other on the shoulder. That’s kind of where we’re at right now. There’s no animosity or hard feelings on my end at all. We’ll see where it goes from here.”

Do you think Evans and Jones will meet again?
