With Jon Jones absolute destruction of Mauricio Rua at UFC 128 on March 19, a match between former number one contender Rashad Evans for the new light heavyweight champion is on the radar. Following the fights, MMA fighting’s Ariel Helwani interviewed Evans, and throughout Evans looked like he was anxious and eager.
The one time Evans smiled was when he was asked after watching the fight, was he thinking about how to fight him. Evans replied, “I know how to fight him. I trained with him.”
When Helwani asked about Greg Jackson, the interview got a little interesting. “I’m done with Jacksons. I’m done.”
Evans, who was Jackson’s most impressive fighter before Jones, seems to look as though he has been disrespected by his old team. I am eager to find out more information about the split, but it will be interesting to see all the promotional packages when this fight does happen. The best thing for MMA fans is this will happen.
