Jon Jones says Rashad is merely a pawn in the game HE is playing

Jon Jones says Rashad is merely a pawn in the game HE is playing

Every time I read the phrase ‘you are just a pawn in my game’ my brain inserts an obnoxious overdone evil laugh at the end akin to that of Frau Farbissina and Dr. Evil and their gang of no good kronies. It just sounds like something one would say while they are in the process of activating a giant world destructing laser beam. I doubt Jon Jones is devising some evil plan to obliterate the world but he does at the very least have intentions of thwarting Rashad Evans’ plan to destroy him at UFC 145. Here’s what he had to say in a rectn interview with The Sun:

“Rashad’s just a pawn in this game that I’m playing. Nothing more.”

“I love that he talks so much crap because the more crap he talks, the sillier he’s going to look when he loses that fight.”

“Rashad talks about the time he held me down in practice and how he was getting me to break mentally, I’ve eliminated all possibilities of that happening. I have my older brother here, I have Travis Brown here and I have a whole bunch of heavyweights that are a lot more powerful and big than Rashad and I’m having these guys hold me down in practice and try their hardest to break me mentally. Basically, I’m fighting from the worst position he could put me in and if he’s banking on breaking me mentally, he’s going to have a rude awakening when he realizes that’s just not going to happen.”

The smack talk between Jones and Evans leading up to this long awaited battle has been surprisingly low key, but maybe this is a sign the rivalry is starting to heat back up. I still can’t exactly picture Jon Jones wearing a white lab coat and glasses and constructing a matter vaporizer in his basement like Heinz Doofenschmirtz, but I can imagine him throwing his head back, smirking a satisfied smirk and laughing a hearty evil laugh as he calls Rashad his little pawn. As a matter of fact I can picture Rashad laughing a dastardly laugh right along with Bones and we’ll finally get to see who gets the last evil laugh in just three short weeks when UFC 145 arrives in Atlanta on April 21st.
