After a year of build-up and plenty of verbal sparring, it’s almost time for Jon Jones and Rashad Evans to finally go toe-to-toe.
The biggest light heavyweight fight of the year is set to go down April 21st, and the one-time training partners are going to settle the feud that has been a major focus of the MMA world since Jones took the 205 lb. title off of Shogun Rua last March.
With former Strikeforce and Pride champion Dan Henderson waiting in the wings, the winner of this title fight will already have a top-level opponent set up in the consistently stacked light heavyweight division.
There hasn’t been much of a change since last month’s rankings, but the division is about to heat up considerably in April.
