After nearly a year in the making the curtain is only a few hours away from dropping on UFC 145, a card headlined by one of the most-hyped bouts in UFC history with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones taking on former teammate (and former title-holder) Rashad Evans. Each is on an impressive winning streak and is out to cement a legacy, as well as a personal score, in the highly anticipated tilt.
On the latest episode of UFC Primetime: Jones vs. Evans cameras caught up with the talented 205ers during the final build towards their fight including their arrival last week in Atlanta. Jones also made some interesting comments on Evans during the show, expressing concern about how Evans will respond when he comes up short in tonight’s fight.
“I just look at Rashad as being a lost soul. He’s said a lot and he’s disrespected me a lot. It seems like this whole camp he’s been more obsessed with trying to win over fans than trying to win this fight,” explained Jones. “I think him winning this belt is all he has left. And he’s not getting that either so he’s gonna have some serious soul searching to do after this fight.”
