Evans Vs. Jones 'Ultimate Insider'
Things between Rashad Evans and Jon Jones seem to be heating up and the UFC is doing a great job of capturing it. This time the two are feuding on the "Ultimate Insider" show and things are getting pretty personal.
Here are some highlights transcribed by MMAMania.com:
"Greg, he said, basically, Rashad is always welcome back. You know, Rashad will always be like a brother to me. You know, he spoke so highly of Rashad. On numerous occasions, he really did everything he could to keep some type of rapport. On the other hand, you have Rashad, who's bashing the program and the history --"
"--The history? I made that history! What are you talking about? I'm the one who helped make that history! You're the one who came into it. You came into it! Don't talk about the history, when you have no roots in the history! Don't talk about -- I helped make Greg Jackson! I helped make him the reason why you even wanted to come there and train. So, don't talk to me about the history of the team, bro! Don't talk to me about the history of the program because, motherf*cker, I made that program!"
Let me be the first to say that I think this beef is genuine. If you compare it to the usual pre-fight squabbles it feels completely different than the typical weigh in shoving matches and the mean looks. In a weird personal way, I feel sorta bad that their friendship has went down this road (not that it really matters) but you get the feeling both men are scorned by the situation.
