Jones vs. Evans. Who do you think is training harder?

Watching Primetime with some of my less hardcore friends, one of them pointed out that in both episodes it seems really evident that Jones is training harder than Evans. Im rooting for Evans so I then yelled at my friend that Evans just doe sent want to show his cards. Even though I was agreeing with them in my head.

Friend pointed out that Jones looks hungry running up hills in the desert and jumping in ice baths. Evans is taking photo shoots in PR and riding his bike in his million dollar living room.

We all know the odds and breakdowns. I want to know who you guys think is more motivated and who is hungrier in this matchup.

Jones likes to flaunt.

Strategy is crucial for Rashad in this fight, you will not see much training footage.

I don't think either one of them is training harder as this may possibly be the biggest fight they have for years to come.

The real question is who is training smarter? Jones has acknowledged that he is training against Evans strengths, and Evans has rediculed him for that saying he isn't worried about Jones's strength.

Jone Jones, Evans is training hard, but I think Jones is training harder. I don't like him, but as arrogant as he is he knows what this fight means. He knows what time it is and he knows he wants to be the greatest. Which is why i think he is training harder than anyone else.

To me Evans has already peek and is enjoying successes his career brings, Jones on the other hand is hungry and would not stop until he gets what he wants which is being the best.

Evans is training harder. He's a lot more experienced and a lot older than Jones, and knows his limits better than Jones does. Evans always comes in amazing shape too, not to say that Jones comes in shitty shape, but I think Jones is still figuring himself out.

I can't believe that one is necessarily training harder than the other. I also don't think what we've on Primetime is necessarily indicative of how each man is training. Who knows how much of their training/strategizing each man is allowing to be filmed/shown.

Both are professionals, and both know this fight is huge. I don't buy into Rashad being complacent because he's been to the top of the mountain. If anything I think being knocked from the top would make him even more hungry to get back there. And Jones, well, he's the champion; his dedication to this surely can't be questioned.

To answer the question, neither. Both are surely training as hard as they can. Come fight night, they'll both be as well trained as they possibly can be.

I think the safe answer is neither. I believe both fighters are training at a peak level and there is only 5 and a half more days to find out.

I think there should'v been a third option. From the looks of it, they're both pretty much training equally as hard.

During the waning moon, I think Rashad is training harder on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Bones trains harder the other days. Apart from Wednesday between 1:30pm and 3pm where Rashad clearly trains a little harder-er I think.

During the waxing moon, it gets all flipped, apart from Thursday mornings where they both play xbox. Although Rashad tends to work the joypad harder then Bones.
