Surprise, Rashad Evans wants Rampage to beat Bones Jones, but doesn’t think it will happen

As of this weekend, I made a bet with my former roommate that someone will knockout someone in the main event at UFC 135. You’re going to have to use your intuition to discover who, but the only hint I will give is that one of the fighters fought against Matt Hamill. When it comes to the inevitable ‘stanky leg’ at UFC 135, the verdict is still out. There will be no egg on our face this time. We cook eggs and impregnate plates with healthy breakfast options. If Rampage beats Bones, it will be through a flash knockout that will be followed by one sole punch to cement the win. Alternatively, based on the density of Jackson’s skull, if Jones defeats Rampage it will be through referee stoppage or a unanimous decision. The outcomes have been placed in front of you, now choose wisely grappler.

In an interview with MMAWeekly Radio, Rashad Evans states that he hopes Rampage ‘catches him with something,’ but ultimately feels that Jon Jones will retain his UFC light heavyweight title.

“I think it’s going to be Jon Jones. I would like to see Rampage catch him with something, but I honestly believe Rampage is not doing what he needs to do, and he’s not going to do what he needs to do to win the title. He’s just been living off of fumes of his Pride days, and he really needs to go and take things seriously. If he took things seriously, I think he might be able to do something, but he ain’t trying to take nothing serious.”

Now does Evans want Rampage to win in order to not fight his former teammate, or does he just despise Jon Jones that much? What’s going on here? It’s like a triangle of deceit that’s fit for a Mexican telenovela. [Source]
