    Where’s the vid ?

  2. slacker says:

    Wow. The more times I hear Rashad in interviews, the more I believe he really got burned by Greg Jackson. I feel bad for the guy, and I hope he teaches Jones a lesson.

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      Sounds like Jackson/Winklejohn kicked Rashad to the curb. At the same time I think Rashad is more upset with the camp than Jones.

    • MMACRAVER says:

      Yea I would have to say that a lot of what Rashad says about this whole ordeal rings true for me, and I take pride in my bullshit filter.

      and I’m not even a huge Rashad fan (or Jones for that matter)

      • slacker says:

        For sure, you can tell here he is being honest. Only thing I can see is, Greg was willing to be neutral and not corner either is what he said, so in a way, Rashad sabotaged himself by saying fuck you to Greg. Jackson probably remembered his promise but then was trying to deal with the fact that now time had passed and Jones was a tighter part of the team. But, in the end, IMO, Greg should have kept his initial promise and cornered Rashad. So, having been with Jackson long before Jones, I can see why it;s a betrayal. Greg tried to play neutral but the promise had already been made. He screwed up. That’s my take on it. And of course, having no coach call you up after losing the belt is disheartening for sure. Where’s the support when you really need it?!

          Brilliant assessmen!

        • slacker says:

          Thanks. Well, that’s my opinion anyways. It would be interesting to get more details from Greg’s side to get a fuller picture.

        • Turkeykneck fun chav says:

          Jon jones never called out Rashad,
          Rashad was already having issues before jones was a bigger figure.
          he has nothing to say on jones because his issue isnt with jones its with his old camp as he feels buthurt from the machida loss and his team were not there to pick him up.
          that is justified, HE called out Jon Jones afair. I would imagine its to smash the hopes greg and wink have put into Jon and teach them a lesson.

  3. Joe says:

    War Rashad!!! Bones is faker than the titties on a porn star. I believe what Evans says about the whole situation because you can tell the honesty in his face and tone when he speaks. Jon Jones is a monster no doubt, but let go Rashad, humble this fake ass dude once and for all!!!

    • Joey Grecko says:

      I literally just LOL here in my cubicle at work. I like that “faker than the titties on a pornstar”

  4. Joe says:

    WAR RASHAD!!! Jones is faker than the titties on a porn star. You can tell the honesty in Evans’ voice and face when he speaks about the situation, you don’t get the same for Jones whatsoever. Bones is a beast no doubt, but let’s go RASHAD!!! Humble this cocky kid, make him skip to your lou all night long!

  5. Jonesblowsbones says:

  6. Bjj BB says:

    Dont believe everything u read or hear, i dont see how jones can live his dream, and except everything that comes with his success and people say he’s changed ina bad way? Jones is just chaceing his dream and thats it, y cant he make millions? Get sponcers? Feed his family and believe he can and will be one of the greatest? Aint that the whole point of living your dream to the fullest? Every1 on here can suck a fat dick for hating on some1 thats just living his dream!! Fuck yall haters!!

  7. Clay says:

    Dana white needs Xanax

  8. Bjj BB says:

    @Ninja oreo, im just talking to every1 on here thats hating on jones.

  9. kenji says:

    rashad has to chop jones down like a tree. to depend on his right or his wrestling is too predictable. he has to sneek in his kick on jones front leg periodically. he has to wear and tear at the front leg. rampage saw a weakness in the 2 round but failed to capitalize. evans has to chop at the leg…then follow up.
