Rashad Evans is fired up to fight Jon Jones

It’s been just a few hours since Shogun Rua tapped to strikes and Bloodstain Lane has already said he is going to delete the Team Takeover forums, people are saying Jones has already cleared out the 205 division and Lorenzo Fertitta is Tweeting (Twatting?) that he wants Anderson Silva vs Bones Jones. All the while I missed last nights ‘super moon‘ in all it’s glory. No one is giving Rashad Evans a chance in his upcoming title fight with Bones Jones, not even the odds makers. The books just opened and the line for Rashad Evans/Bones Jones is out: Jones -400 Evans +300. Wow. I bet when Rashad finds out that will get him even more motivated than he already was. MMAJunkie spoke with Dana White about Rashad last night and it turns out Rashad has left Greg Jackson and is indeed, fired up.

“Rashad is 100 percent on board to fight Jon Jones. Rashad is fired up about this. He wants to fight Jon Jones.”

“From what I understand, he has left Greg Jackson’s camp. He’s no longer with Jackson. Rashad and I have had our differences, and we’ll probably continue to have our differences, but Rashad is 100 percent on board to fight Jon Jones and is actually fired up about that opportunity. And you know if that isn’t the case, I’d tell you it isn’t the case.”

So does this mean Coach Jackson will be in Bones’ corner? These are things I will contemplate as I search for pictures of last nights moon.
