Jones says during sparing with Rashad he was always the one with the chance to finish

UFC: Jon Jones remains grounded even as stock rises - ESPN

The champion, almost brazenly, claims an advantage in style, preparation and experience.

He has a lot to study. I have a lot to study, but I get to study[ing] more in-depth. He gets to study[ing] and gets a headache.
Ē -- Jones, on his work ethic compared to Rashad Evans' in the gym

"We fought each other in practice," said Jones, who pushed his record to 13-1 with last month's triumph. "A finish has been possible several times and it has always been me finishing him. I never did it out of respect that he was the elder of the school. It's against protocol in a way. Some people would do it but I believe in tradition.

"He has a lot to study. I have a lot to study, but I get to study[ing] more in-depth. He gets to study[ing] and gets a headache."

Evans (15-1-1), already churning away in the gym, declined to respond

I think Jones is a little bit more credible of a source than unnamed rumors.

Not really, I mean what do you expect him to say? "Oh yeah Rashad used to beat my ass in sparring" **** no!

The only thing I like about this fight is that I really don't care for either guy, so I cant sit back and enjoy some world-class MMA without getting emotionally invested in the result.

As usual, what Jones is saying is rather douchey, but I certainly don't doubt it.

HW: JDS
LHW: Rua, Gustafsson
MW: Sonnen
WW: GSP
LW: Pettis

He didn't have to say anything at all.

It's not like what he's saying is exactly surprising either, he's looked better than Rashad in his fights in just about every area.

First to admit I did not think he would beat Shogun.
But I did not realise what a big LHW he is.He looked like a HW.
Still respect - but he is heading for a fall
