Post-Weigh-in notes:

Jones stares dead into Evans’ eyes and they have to be separated after grinding foreheads.

Mental edge to Evans? Jones deviated and made eye contact during both face-offs this week. #LookEyeAlwaysLookEye

Boos for Evans as he takes the mic, but Jones surprisingly receives a louder chorus of boos when he speaks. Pro-Evans for UFC 145?
