Same. Old. Story...

When you are the contender you are a fighter and you fight through adversity and injury.

When you are a champion you are an investment and you enjoy that belt, the sponsorships, and the media coverage while getting a lifetime of medical issues resolved.

The UFC is pissing me off with all the champions that have extensive medical leave after winning a title.

I hate to say it, but jon jones is scared, he knows rasahd is debo and will knock his ass out. If he had the same injury against vera,shogun,the russian guy,bonnar,etc why on earth would he decide now to get it fix. I don't think the kid can handle the pressure. Evans is a bully he would make jon jones snap with prefight antics.

I am by no means Jones biggest fan, but i am pretty sure that a guy willing to take on Mauricio Shogun Rua at short notice at the age of 22 is not ducking anyone. Its possible he could fight on with the injury, but he in all liklihood is sick of it and wants it sorted so he can come in as near to 100% as possible - i sincerely doubt fear of Rashad Evans is a motivating factor in this situation.

Even though i think Rashad has a good chance to win the fight.

Pretty convenient. I don't think he's actively ducking, but I think he realized he has a good reason not to fight and as a champion he can now take all the time he wants. I'm pretty sure we'll read "JBJ ready to fight" one or two weeks after the Evans/Davis fight.

Yup, soooooo.... scared!!! Obviously, the guy that took a fight with Shogun on short notice is terrified of getting blanketed by Evans.

I don't see any reason why Jones would duck Evans, or anybody. He's proven time and time again that he's a superior athlete. It's understandable that when he's young and hungry, working his way to the title, yeah he's gonna work through shit to get there. Now that he's at the top, him taking time to fix everything that was nagging him is perfectly fine. I don't see why everybody is assuming that he's ducking everyone. That's like saying Fedor was ducking Overe..., never mind, bad example.

Its not the fight its self its the aspects around the fight. You telling me if jones and evans enter a war of words, jone's reputation would not be affected? Fighting evans is bad publistcity on jones's part. He is not rampage he tries to keep a clean and a pg rating with his comment. Let see since it was announce he was fighting evans, evans has called fake, milli vanilli,etc. I don't think the kid is ready for what evans will throw at him. How does someone like jones reply to evan's trash talking. U know he will not stay quiet and u know he is not rampage to say i'm gonna knock this mother **** n**** out. Sometimes a fight can be won before it takes place.

Oh sh1t your right now I see, I bet Jones is ducking because he is sh1t scared about what Evans will say about him.

I wonder why nobody has come up with this explanation yet. Maybe Jones actually doesn't like the idea of fighting who he considers a friend? Only a few weeks back this was the main reason discussed on this forum.

or just maybe he really is just injured and sees now as the perfect time to sort it out and get back as soon as he can, then after he gets back after surgery just maybe he will face anyone, I wonder why nobody has come up with that explanation yet
