Rashad Evans To Greg Jackson: "You F*#in' Spilled The Milk, Clean It Up"

On Greg Jackson's public declaration that he will take no part in the matchup between Jones and Evans:

 

 

Quote:

"You can't say you are not going to have anything to do with it when you are a big part of the reason why the situation originated. That's like spilling a glass of milk and then walking away and saying that you don't want to have anything to do with it. You f**kn spilled the milk...so you're at least going to help clean it up right?

 

"When Jon Jones came to the gym over a year ago Greg Jackson came to me and said, "listen, what do you feel about having this kid on the team?" I told him straight up that I didn't like it. I told him that the kid was talented and that the sky was the limit with him but that was the type of guy I wanted to fight not train with. Greg came back saying, "No, no, no this will be just like you and Keith where he will be just like a brother." I still told him that I didn't want to do that. Then Greg said if that situation ever did arise between Jones and I that he would have to turn the fight down because that's how it works. He would have to turn down the fight with me so that way I wouldn't be put in a position where I looked like a punk. That's how it works in the Greg Jackson system.

 

"After a while Greg was so high on this kid coming in and I met Jon Jones and he was a very nice and very sweet kid, so eventually I said f**k it, let' s bring him in. After he got there and I trained with him and tried him out a little bit, something didn't feel right so I moved my camp up to Denver to train at Grudge for awhile. That is where I spent the majority of my time over the past two fights."

 

On being disrespected by Bones:

 

 

 

Quote:

"Jon and I were clicking on another level almost like I did with my first training partner. It was starting to get to the point where it was like what Keith and I have where we feel like brothers. We would share ideas and I wasn't holding back on him and I felt that he wasn't holding back on me and I knew that because there were days where Jon would have some rough days in the gym. We worked a rough pace and if you are competing at this level and you train with someone everyday you can tell when they are struggling. I did my best to help and I really felt that our friendship was on another level...but that wasn't the case.

 

"When the first opportunity came and he said that he would fight me if Dana said so, that to me stung more than anything. He said that he didn't want to lose his job and look man, the UFC isn't going to fire anyone because they are turning down fights. If anything it would mess up future opportunities for them and they weren't going to come to him and say, "if you don't fight Rashad you are kicked out of the UFC." That wasn't going to happen. I was always considerate and respectful to our system because if I had the belt then I would want you to do the same for me. Then he comes across on national TV and says that he will fight Rashad if Dana White tells me to and I felt so f**cking utterly disrespected.

 

"I mean it's one thing to say something in an interview but the least you could have picked up the phone and been like, "man I did an interview today and they kind of put me on the spot with a rough question and I answered it this way." At least give me the heads up so that way I know and not look at it if he's Judas or something. You know who Judas is? That interview was some backstabbing s**t but now it's like whatever because now I know the game he is playing. Then for Greg to sit back and say he doesn't want to have anything to do with it....why not? You f**kn created the situation. Be his coach and be in his corner. That's what you want so do it. I don't care if coaches against me. It doesn't even matter."

First off, I'm dying to know more. Life is complicated. There isn't always a good guy and a bad guy, but there usually is. I want to know who I should root for.

 

Second, I'd just like to know who the better fighter is. We can all speculate, but we don't know. I always want the better fighter to win. I just hope that the one I'm rooting for happens to be the better fighter.

 

This is great, though. There's real emotion here. As a fan of MMA, I appreciate the sport in it's purest form. As a human, I love the added drama that this fight, and sometimes others possesses.

News just in..............

 

Rashad is dropping to middleweight.

 

He's having his man-breasts removed to save on the weight cut.

 

He's scared of getting KTFO by Bones and wants to fight Bisping again because then he might actually get a W.

 

are you on crack?

 

Jackson pleaded with Rashad to move down so Rashad doesn't school Jones

Rashad is taking this WAY too personal. And he's being selfish. He's not looking at it through Jones' perspective. Jones wants to be the best and Rashad is the number 1 contender. What the hell do you expect Jones to do?

 

Plus Greg Jackson should take a page out of Golden Glory's book. They kick the living **** out of each other in training and in the ring all the time and they all treat each other like brothers :) Hell Alistair and Valentijn Overeem said that if, by some bad luck, they end up fighting each other, they'd do it. And that's his actual brother! Not his metaphorical one that he's only known for a few years...

Jones will wreck Rashad.
