UFC 145 Video: Jon Jones Will Be 'Defending His Team's Honor' Against Rashad Evans

UFC 145 is still a month away, but the trash talk between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans is in full swing. In a recent interview with Sherdog, Jones talked about the role of "Gym Defender" Rashad's trash talking has put him in.

Here's the video:


Quote after the jump...

Jones on Rashad's trash talking of Greg Jackson's gym:

One part that is kind of there, I kind of feel like I'm defending kind of like the honor of this team. Rashad's been badmouthing this team and really calling our team cliche and commercial and just really badmouthing Greg and our program's loyalty and everything like that. I think he kind of has it all twisted in his own head, feeling as if people betrayed him. And, really, this is a family here and it's the same program that it's always been. Yeah, he's been here longer than me but he doesn't realize how much a family this team still is. There's more people on this team than just the UFC fighters. We start from kids, to kids with no money, to kids who can't speak English, there's a whole family here. I'm here to defend this family and to defend everything he's kind of said about us. I feel like me beating him solidifies that this is a program that's going to live without him.
