This Saturday at UFC 145 Jon Jones and Rashad Evans will finally settle their feud. It’s been well documented how Jones and Evans used to be training partners and how their relationship has been severed since Jones publicly said he would fight Evans if asked to. Jones had an unbelievable 2011 and he will look to continue that in 2012 with another marquee win over another former champion in Rashad Evans. Jones is a huge favorite to retain his title with some odds makers listing him as high as a 6-1 favorite! I think the fight will be much closer than people think. Evans has a huge chip on his shoulder and he’s trained with Jones many times before. Also Evans’s style is to stay away from damage as much as possible and try to take this fight to the ground. It may be boring but it will give him a chance. Also don’t forget Evans has knockout power and Jones’s chin hasn’t really been tested. My head says Jones is just too good right now and won’t be denied…but my gut’s telling me Evans is going to dance around long enough to catch Jones slipping. Either way I can’t wait.
