“It’s an interesting fight [between Phil Davis and Rashad Evans]. I’ll go with Rashad because of the experience factor. But Phil Davis can win more than he realizes, he has to be comfortable striking. I won’t say too much because I have my own ideas on how to beat Rashad, but, I don’t think Rashad has a chin at all. Trust me Rashad does not have chin. But it will be a closer fight that people will realize.”

It’s been awhile since we have heard Jon Jones talk about his biggest rival in the game, Rashad Evans. But Ariel Helwani got it out of him yesterday during his podcast, “The MMA Hour” via mmafighting.com.

For his part, Evans only has one professional defeat and that came at the hands of Lyoto Machida. However, Jones is a former training partner to the former champion in Evans and maybe he has some insight on the “chin” of Rashad that the rest of the world is not privy to.
