UFC Rashad Evans

According to Rashad Evans (Pictured), reigning UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones broke bro code when he said he’d fight Evans if the powers that be forced them to tango. That’s when “Suga” soured on their friendship and drew a distinctive line in the sand.

“Jon Jones was a friend, like my little brother,” Evans said of his former teammate. “We were never even supposed to entertain the idea of fighting each other. This is a lot deeper than any other fight that I had. It is definitely code broken.

“When I’m dead tired, I think about Jon thinking that he’s better than me, thinking that he’s going to expose me. I’m motivated beyond belief. I’d give my life for it right now. I’m Rashad Evans fired up by something, you better get out the way. It is about payback.”

The friends-turned-foes finally have the opportunity to squash their beef when they headline UFC 145 on April 21st.

The UFC previously released a commercial featuring Jones titled “Believe your eyes” to hype their 205-pound champion. Now watch Evans’ video with a some James Brown bumpin’ in the background.
