We all know the backstory with former light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans and current 205-pound king Jon Jones. The two were former training partners and had previously stated they would never fight. That all changed when Jon Jones took to the air before his fight with Shogun and claimed he would, in fact, fight his teammate if he won the gold.
Jones is now champion and Evans has left Greg Jackson’s camp for Imperial Athletics to prepare for his upcoming title fight… and it didn’t take long for the two to exchange harsh words. In response to a fan on Twitter, Evans referred to Jones as “Judas Jones” for turning his back on him and wanting to fight.
The trash talk leading up to this fight is going to be epic. Count me in as someone who will be watching closely.
