As has been the case in the past, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was not shy in voicing his opinion when he made his main-event prediction at the end of the video.
“I can see Phil Davis winning by knockout, man. Really, Rashad’s chin sucks,” Jones said matter-of-factly. "I can see Rashad winning by taking him down, trying to lay on him. It’s gonna be a great fight."
Not surprisingly, "Bones" will be rooting for his former teammate-turned-rival, Rashad Evans, so that the two men can finally settle the score in Octagon.
“I’m sure Phil Davis has gotten a lot better since his last appearance, Rashad’s showing some changes in his game," Jones said.
"I’m rooting for Rashad to win the fight, that way I can fight Rashad and just get past it. Get it over with.”
Evans and Jones have been rumored to meet in a title bout for roughly a year now, but injuries to both fighters have prevented the match up from ever coming to fruition.
"Suga" decided to leave Greg Jackson's camp after Jones won the title from Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 128 and started the Blackzilians training camp in Boca Raton, Fla. with several Brazilian fighters who had a fall-out with American Top Team.
