Former training partners, Jon Jones and Rashad Evans have a storied past. From deciding to never fight each other to eventually finding their way across the octagon from each other, Jones & Evans have an intricate history together. Jones defeated Evans in their first matchup, but Rashad Evans is out to earn himself another shot at the light heavyweight title:

Ariel Helwani: If  you win on Saturday, are you going down to 185?

Rashad Evans: Ah. No I'm going to stay at 205. I want to fight Jon Jones again. Jon Jones has been getting better and better every fight. I want to go in there and see how much better he's gotten.

It is odd because I think he has the skillset to do well and maybe even win against Jones, but for some reason he seemed to just want to survive in that fight. I wish he would just say fuck it and go balls out.

Rashad needs to go lay on some other fighters before worrying about a rematch with Jones.

KingofBJJ -

If you want to see how much better a fighter has become, go spar with them.  You go fight if you want to win the championship.

So true Phone Post 3.0

Unfortunately that's just not how Rashad fights. He is very conservative. Sometimes I think it would benefit him to be more aggressive. Phone Post 3.0

The reason why he is all "Shy" now is because Machida put his ass on queer street.

He doesn't want to go there again. If Hendo connects with one of his H-bombs we will probably see Stankey Leg 2.0 Phone Post
