Evans unphased by Jones’ sponsorships
“I guess it is what it is,” he said on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “It seems they got their guy that they’re going to get behind, I guess. I can’t really say too much about that. I just got to go in there and do what I need to do. I can’t really worry about that. I can’t really worry about who they favor or who they may like. It doesn’t change anything.”
Jones has come to be considered a massive favorite in the fight, nearly 6-to-1 in some places, even though Evans has only one career loss on his fight ledger.
It seems that the public isn’t the only one betting on him. When asked if he believes the UFC is favoring Jones on fight night, Evans couldn’t deny the possibility.
“If they’re sponsoring him, it may seem that way,” he said. “But you know, honestly, it doesn’t matter if they favor him or not. They have guys they want to get behind, so if they want to get behind him, that’s on them. It doesn’t bother me though.”
