Jones and Evans reignite rivarly

"I think that my opponent will be in my head this fight," he said. "And I want him in my head because I realize when people are in my head, it brings out the best in me, and that’s what I’m prepared to show."

The 24-year-old has seen his star rise over the last year following a brilliant stretch that saw him win four times in 2011, including three finishes over former UFC champions.

But it was a question of whether Jones could finish Evans within one round that led to the most animated exchange between the two fighters. It started innocently enough from Jones.

"I’m going to be cliche and say I’m going to go out there with great intentions and train really hard and just have fun," he said. "I realize when I have fun great things happen. Magical things happen."

But as he finished his thought, Evans interjected, saying "What do you really think, though?"

"You remember what I told you," Jones said.

"I remember what you told me, but I remember you didn’t mean it," Evans said.

I got to watch Rashad at UFC 88, and i just bought tickets for 145. This fight has the potential to be huge, and if Rashad can pull off the upset, he might just have to buy a house in Atlanta.

The last part of that exchange reminds me of the ending to 2pacs 7day theory album.
