I still don't think Jones screwed him of a title fight. End of the day the reason the fight was put back originally is because you can't have a title fight without the title holder. At this point the LHW division was getting stacked with contenders. Apart from an interim title what else could Dana do? Rashad was just a cog in the bigger scheme of things. He broke and they bought in a replacement. I think Rashad acted like douche in the situation.
Saying that I think Evans takes this fight by having good enough wrestling to keep the fight standing and in most cases he who controls where the fight goes wins the fight. See GSP for a perfect example of this
I also see Rampage giving Jones problems, we might even see Rampage vs evans 2 which would be a shame because I think the bad blood between Evans and Jones needs settling and if it were a title shot it would be all the more sweeter or would that be bitter
