Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans recently spoke at an Ultimate Fighter press conference. The Blackzilian fighter talked about his past relationship with Jon Jones and how he feels about it now.
“For me, Jon Jones and that whole experience taught me a lot. Jon Jones was one of my favorite training partners and I would have loved to be able to see what we could have done together if we were able to stay together. Our training sessions were really good. We had some really good training sessions. I felt like we could have learned a lot from each other and raised each other’s game up.”
“I think at some point you have to look back and see your role in the situation. Looking back and seeing my whole role in the situation, I didn’t handle everything right.”
“Even though Jon does amazing things inside the cage, Jon is still young. You give somebody so young so much power, so much freedom, they don’t always make the right decisions. He’s human and sometimes people think things never catch up with then. Sometimes they catch up with you at the wrong time.”
