This was all outlined in a thread one of Dan Lambert's underlings started on the UG around March 1st of last year. Rashad (and Mike van Arsdale) did not arrive on the scene until about three weeks later.
Fair enough, but that camp would not have drawn the same quality of fighters without Rashad and Mike. I'd still count him as a co-founder. I'm not convinced there's even a remote chance of his going back to train with Jackson full time. There might be a public hatchet-burying at some point just because it would improve their collective images, but I don't see Rashad going back at all, and I don't see Jones moving up for at least a couple of years.
