Rashad Evan Doesn’t Like Jon Jones “Snake Moves” Bashes Him Online


Still mad? Rashad Evans can’t seem to drop the fact that his former team and teammate Jon Jones has moved on. The former champion tells ProMMARadio his side of the story.

When asked if would be OK to bring Jon Jones on the team,

“I told Greg no and Greg went to Phil Nurse and talked to him about it and tried to convince Phil to convince me to let him on the team. Chris Luttrell is pretty much the guy that’s Greg first guy. He’s from way back in the day. He told Chris that he wants Jones because he’s the wave of the future. Ask any of those guys and they’ll corroborate my story. ”

What’s done is done. The thing that upsets me about Jon is how he threw me under the bus because he said he’d fight me after all that time we said we wouldn’t fight each other… It was a snake move and I don’t like snake moves. Be a man.”

The fight likely wont happen until the last quarter of 2011, but that hasn’t stopped Rashad Evans from unleashing a barrage of bullying on twitter.

    LOL @ Rashad……he needs to take his own advice and be a man and say that chit to Bones…not over twitter or some radio show. Rashad, Jones will whoop your ass and I can't wait to see it happen.

    I like Rashad but I think he didn't want to fight Jones because he probably felt his talent at practice. Whats really crazy is hearing Anderson Silva doesn't ever want to fight Jones because they're 'friends'. What is going on, is Jon Jones everyones friend? After 5 minutes of meeting the guy?

    i'm pretty sure it was rashad asking jones himself, during an interview before the shogun fight, that if he won would he fight him next. he's just tryin to get as much attention and hype to this matchup as he can. all he wants is a title match. tryin to make himself the front runner. i say make him fight anderson then the winner gets jones. and if thats true that anderson wont fight jones cuz they're friends….i'd tell him, it's either that or he HAS to fight the loser of lesnar/dos santos, if i were dana. its starting to sound like anderson is scared and ducking certain fights and waiting for the perfect matchup to his advantage. you dont get to hand pick your fights, anderson.

    Jones did it again. In an interview he acknowledged that he looked up to Anderson and that they were friends, but he thinks he has the tools to beat Anderson. Thats the kind of small comment that started the whole Rashad beef.

    So you've got Anderson saying he would never fight Jones and Jones saying it could happen, who looks like the fool.

    I agree with rhetro3 that Anderson seems like he wants matchups where he has a clear advantage. Jones would be a really difficult fight for him.

    Rhetro & Ray I respectully disagree with your assessment of Silva. He has fought and defeated everyone placed in his way and has not ducked anyone. He has clearly stated he wants to remain at 185 and not move up. Is it his fault he has cleaned out his division..no. If anything I see GSP moving up and us maybe getting the opportunity to see GSP/Silva.

    I really don't think Silva is ducking anyone either. He's said before that he won't fight friends and that he wouldn't fight Machida. Well he said it again..I don't fight friends and wont fight Jones. I wish he would reconsider the Jones fight though.

    i'm not all aboard the jon jones hype wagon yet. just because he had a great title fight doesn't mean he is deserving of superfights. he's got to earn that right first. silva and gsp are the only fighters right now that can do that.

    PoppyNick, he has definately fought everyone that has been put in the cage with him and there hasnt been any contreversy of him ever duckin his fights. but you also have to remember that he is the champ and he does have to fight the number one contender. there is no possible way to duck those. but he can choose who he wants to fight in a weight class that he is not the champion in. and i really dont think that he really wants to remain at 185 when he has fought at 205 and even talked about fightin frank mir. plus the fact that his walkin around weight between fights i believe is around 220.

    on another note a gsp/anderson fight would be awesome but i think the gsp needs a warm up fight at 185. if anderson gets 2 warm up fights at 205 then why should gsp jump right into the ring with silva? ive been sayin this before dan henderson left but i think that gsp/hendo fight would be an amazing matchup where i dont think either man has an advantage in either striking or wrestling. then the winner of that takes on silva. or the same thing with vanderlei silva if he is still considering to fight at 185. gsp/vanderlei.
