UFC 128: Rashad Evans has no problem fighting Jon JonesPosted on March 20, 2011, 12:32 AM by Anton Gurevich
Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion "Suga" Rashad Evans declared in an interview to MMA H.E.A.T.'s Karyn Bryant that he has no problem to fight the former teammate Jon "Bones" Jones. Evans also stated he knows the key to beating Jon Jones, just as Jon Jones knows the key to beating him.
Evans was originally scheduled to square off at UFC 128 against Shogun Rua, but was forced to pull out of the fight due to a knee injury. Jones replaced Evans, eventually beating Rua in impressive fashion.
The fight is now expected to happen in July, possibly as a headliner of the traditionally stacked "Fourth of July Event". This year's "Fourth of July" fight card will be UFC 132, which will take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 2nd. Penn vs. Fitch 2 showdown is already official as a co-main event of the night.
