Rashad Evans: I'm motivated beyond belief to defeat Jon JonesPosted on March 25, 2012, 08:57 AM by Anton Gurevich
Next month, Jon Jones and Rashad Evans will finally meet inside the Octagon, headlining the stacked UFC 146 fight card in Atlanta, Georgia. Evans will be looking to back up his promise to expose Jon Jones, who he considers unworthy of having the UFC Light Heavyweight title around his waist.
In his recent hype-up video, Evans talks about his motivation to defeat Jon Jones, and the "payback" state of mind he will be looking to bring into the cage on April 21st. "Suga" currently trains at Imperial Athletics at Boca Raton, Florida, alongside Jorge Santiago, Anthony Johnson, and many others.
Quote via MMAMania.com:
"Jon Jones was a friend, like my little brother. We were never even supposed to entertain the idea of fighting each other. This is a lot deeper than any other fight that I had. It is definitely code broken. When I'm out there tired, I think about Jon thinking he's better than me, thinking that he's going to expose me. I'm motivated beyond belief. I'd give my life for it right now. I'm Rashad Evans fired up by something -- you better get out the way. It is about payback."
