And Jones is the one acting like a baby? Riiiggghhhtttt... More the reason to dislike Evans. This is screaming of jealousy from Evans. Why not talk this over in privacy between Jackson and Jones? Or save the stupid comments to the media after Jones is done challenging for the title? It seems like Evans wants to shift Jones' focus from his title shot or something. Real classless in my opinion.
ďWhatís gonna happen is, the teamís are gonna split apart. If I know thereís a chance Iím training with Jon and Gregís training with Jon, Iím not gonna train with Greg any more, EVER again. Because I need my coach to always be able to coach me no matter who Iím gonna fight. If he canít do that, I donít feel that thereís a use for me having him as my coach.Ē
I can't watch the video but, I see nothing wrong with this quote. This is an intensely personal issue for these guys and why I'm against team mates being pushed into a fight. If it works for them and they can make each other money then great. If it causes an upheaval and disruption in the system that got them here then leave 'em alone, there are other fights.
edit: I posted this in another thread. Jackson doesn't want to corner either fighter. it's ust a mess. Hope you're all happy now.
Jackson: "Rashad- let me think long and hard about the answer and get back to you only after I have made the absolute best decison"- (1 ms later) "I'll take Jones.... nice knowing you, clean out your locker and don't let the door hit you in the a$$ on your way out."
