Looks to me like all of this was "scenarised" from the top. first the "I don't fight friends" episode creates a buzz, let the buzz build up for some time, wait a bit more, then some more, then throw a couple interview about those supposedly "friends" who just happen to get pi**ed at one another.

of course it smells like they're gonna face one way or another

Jon wins, Rashaad gets his due championship fight
Jon loses badly, Rashaad is the perfect test to see if Jones belongs amongst the top contenders or if it was just a sparkle
Jon loses closely, they can fight to get a rematch against the champ, i.e. #1 contender spot

Bias you say?! OK I suppose!

But!!!!!....Then why are so many people: +70% saying Rashad acted like a douche?! And i am not talking about this place also! I tend to read other MMA related sites from time to time.
The majority have the same reaction. He acted like a very threatened person, very insecure on what's gonna happen next.

Let's look at this again:
1. Both guys say they won't fight against eachother
2. Jones say he doesn't want to fight Rashad, but if it was absolutely necessary and the UFC/Dana would ask him to do it, as a last resort he would fight Rashad
3. Rashad answers back and says that if that's the case, he will fight also, because "he ain't no punk" (although nobody reffered to him as a punk). This is Rashad starting to act like an ass: Take 1.
4. After constantly being answered about "the Rashad subject", Jones says enough is enough. He clarified that subject, and needs to focus on fighting Shogun for the title. Fair enough?! This episode happened last wednesday or thursday.
5. 5 days before Jones' big fight, (4 days after Jones said he doen't want to be asked about Rashad, because he is getting ready for Shogun), Rashad comes out saying this:

"Jon's a young guy and when you're a young guy sometimes you talk a little too fast for your brain to keep up"
Classy act, right?!

"It sounds like he wants to fight, huh? Those sound like fighting words. I don't know how to judge the kid. It's kind of messed up, to be honest. I can't control what anyone else says and it sounds to me like he's a little bit insecure about the whole thing.
Insecure?! Look who's talking!

Sometimes when you open your mouth you show what you're afraid of more than anything. I don't know why he has such an adverse response like that to me. I've never challenged him or made him feel like he should do that sort of thing. It sounds to me -- if I was out of the situation -- that he was feeling insecure about me. ... (It made Jon) sound like a baby".
Who the F**K looks insecure here?! This is Rashad acting like an ass: Take 2!

This is the same guy that said this about Jones, 5 weeks ago:

Since I’m hurt my teammate young phenom Bones Jones is gonna step in 4 me! I’m gonna recover & then see what happens next 4 me! Thank all u 4 the encouragement! I love my supports & my haters! Go get that belt brudda Jones!”

Now he is reffering to Jones like this:
I don't know how to judge the kid
From "brudda" and "young phenom" to "Kid"

Biased or non-biased, i am posting pieces of interviews!

just sayin...
You said it yourself! (bolded part)

But, after reading my post, pls give me an honest opinion and say who do you think made himself look like a total ASS?!?!
That's all i wanna know from you!

PS: i want to see Jones vs Rashad now. I would be very curious what would Rashad have to say about Jones' style and flashy moves, in case he would have to fight him.
2 months ago he looked like a "nuthugger" when talking about what Jones does in training....

Have a nice day!
