Jon Jones did not break Rashad, quite the opposite, he reinforced his confidence.

Rashad is not a good striker, he has great athletic ability. Knocking out Liddell filled him with false confidence, landing a solid punch and head kick on the 'untouchable' Jones will have done the same thing. Training with Blackzillians would have again built is confidence in striking.

...But he's not a good striker. Horrible fight for me, I thought Nog would win but I put Evans in my parlay because he was such a big favorite, he SHOULD have won on paper. I thought, at least if Evans doesn't win he'll probably get beat up but that didn't happen either. Tragic fight.
