“I’m picking Rashad Evans. I’m in his corner … I want to fight Rashad. He’s the antagonist of my career. There’s no just pumping up pay per views when it comes to me and Rashad. Everything about us disliking each other is true. After we fight each other it’ll all be clear, and he can go have a seat somewhere.”
If you missed it, the UFC light-heavyweight champion appeared on last Friday’s FUEL TV UFC on FX special to discuss many topics including this weekend’s UFC on FOX 2 main event between Rashad Evans and Phil Davis.
The Jones vs. Evans feud has been ongoing ever since Jon decided to go on the record in an interview proclaiming that he would have no issue fighting Rashad.
At the time the two were self-proclaimed best friends, brothers and training partners, however the mouth of Jones ruined the relationship and ignited one of the biggest rivalries in the sport today.
Evans has been vocal about his ability to beat Jones in training, he quit his team and moved camps and is now just one win away from facing his rival.
But will Evans be able to handle the elite wrestling of Phil Davis or will Phil kill all hopes of this dream matchup coming to fruition?
