Jon Jones Twitter:

Greg Jackson confirmed today he will be in my corner for UFC 145

Read entire twitter...

Last year former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans and Jackson's MMA 'divorced' over what Evans perceived as bias towards fellow Jackson's team mate and current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones.

When the Evans vs. Jones fight was initially announced, Jackson said he was in all likelihood going to step back and allow another team coach to work Jones' corner. Evans will have coaches from his new camp at Imperial MMA.

For whatever reason, Jackson is now determined to corner against his former student.

No, there were not. Rashad was the only other one, and he was there at Jardine's specific urging and request. A man who doesnt want a conflict of interest to arise/look slimey, WILL in fact only have one contender in each weight division, rather than chasing down possible contenders like a whore in heat. Boxing trainers dont fill their gyms with contenders from the same weights, for very, very good reasons.

How come no one is giving Rashad shit for upping and leaving all the training partners that made him who he is? They lost a good training partner and now he is trashing their gym.

LOL Bullshit. Evans got injured and the UFC offered the title shot to Jones. How is that "pushing Jones to a title shot over Evans"?? You're saying Jackson should have forced Jones to turn it down or something?? Give me a break. As for the whole "he brought another LHW into camp", so what?? There were already multiple other LHWs in camp, even one who was pretty damn close to figthing for a title himself (Keith Jardine). Do you really expect Jackson to only have one fighter in camp from each division? His guys know thats not going to be the case so nobody is forcing them to stay. They can leave if they want...like Diego they may come back.
