UFC 128: Rashad Evans to Jump Weight Classes if Jon Jones Wins

Rashad Evans talks Shogun Rua vs. Jon Jones on ESPN's show MMA Live: (transcribed by Fighters Only)
"I'm happy for Jones, I think it's a great fight for him. I think Jones is going to smash Rua."

"Training with Jones in practice, he's one of the best guys I've ever trained with. The level he's gotten to so fast is scary and alarming. He's one of those guys at the gym, he'll be the first one there and the last one to leave. ... He's hungry, he wants it, so I'm glad if it's going to be someone to step into my place, I'm glad it's him."

"I'm still not going to fight Jon. I will always find something to challenge myself. I will go up to heavyweight or down to middleweight. But I will not fight Jon."
Rashad "Suga" Evans (15-1-1)
Win Quinton Jackson - Decision (Unanimous) UFC 114
Win Thiago Silva - Decision (Unanimous) UFC 108
Loss Lyoto Machida - KO (Punches) UFC 98
