Exclusive: Jon Jones Reveals Controversial Text Message From Rashad Evans [UPDATED]

By Brian J. D’Souza

While making promotional appearances at the MMA Expo and MMA Live show in London, Ontario, UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones took the time for an interview. [Ed. note: We'll be posting the video later.] Speaking on a number of subjects, off-camera, the question of the authenticity of a recent racially-charged insult from Rashad Evans came up.

I took this photo of Jones’s smartphone (blacking out Evans’s number), which contradicts Rashad Evans’ earlier denial where he wrote, “Let me just state 4 the record I never made a racist statement 2 Jones. Jones creditability [sic] is gone with his fake surgery.”

Currently, Rashad Evans is expected to face Phil Davis at UFC 133; original opponent Jon Jones pulled out of the bout, citing a hand injury. Jones’s next opponent is undetermined.

UPDATE: Yes, this is real. I texted the number in the photo, asking for an interview with Rashad Evans, and Evans texted me back the info for his publicist, Jennifer Wenk. Evans is busy training, but Wenk mentioned that he would tell the entire story on ‘Inside MMA’ Friday evening. [Ed. note: Evans discussed his recent nightclub encounter with Jones, but we're not sure if he talked about the text message. Anybody DVR the episode?Jones also confirmed himself that the image was taken from his phone.

These two know how to sell a fight. Rashad get a peice of PPV and I guess Jones will also get some of that action since hes the champ. So all these dump things they go online saying, and seeing other and acting a fool is a show just to sell there fight. After it is all said and done they will both pat each other on the back and laugh to the bank with their huge bag of money.

"Oof, brings back all the painful memories of owning land and people." I was rooting for the guy against Rampage with his push for a positive black image in MMA, but F- him for thinking he can test out that racism in private. ...With his drooping tits and the most shooped face in all of mma. I could float a boat on all the tears that whiner has cried in the past few weeks

Cain Velasquez's tattoo is unimpressed with Rashad's racism.

This is basically the equivalent of Ali calling Frasier an "Uncle Tom" except Rashad didnt have the balls to actually say it.

@Frank
It isn't a racist insult it's ridiculously childish but not racist and some people do have some serious sand in their vag here.

You mad bro?
dranokills- May 22, 2011 at 12:25 am
as always I agree with my brother from down under.
FBF you are right. is white boy suppose to be a bad thing? thats like being called a cracker. I find that amusing I usually say something like : "cracker? like a saltine? are you implying you wanna lick the salt off me and eat me?"
thats right up there with "oh yeah well...well... your a ...a.....a POOPYHEAD!...so there !"
anyone else ever notice that Rashad is not very good at trash talking. I would go so far as to say he is the "whitest" negro I have ever seen. Rampage served rashad up on a platter every time they talked. He even pulled the BBQ line on Rashad...reeled him in like a fucking fish.
The fact all this took place with Jon jones makes it boring, and stupid, and I think both of them are fucktarded cocksmoking salad-tossers.
THAT is how you insult someone Rash-tard, get it right you high yellow, dancing chocolate drop.

Im sure Chael will have a stand up hour about this one real soon
RwilsonR- May 21, 2011 at 5:54 pm
Okay, I get why Chael Sonnen has pissed so many people off, and I even generally get the reasons he has been suspended and agree that they are mostly legitimate. But all of you people that were so happy to see Chael indefinitely suspended need to take a good hard look at this conversation between Rashad and Jon Jones and ask yourself if this is really the quality of trash talk you are happy with in this sport. I mean, this little back and forth is pathetic!
 
RE: "Remember that time we started with me on top in practice, and I wouldn't let you up, but you wanted to get up, but I wouldn't let you get up? Remember that?"
JJ: "Yeah, well I beat you too in practice. Remember that?"
RE: "Nuh uh! Nuh uh! That was just pretend! I was just pretending to be Ryan Bader. That wasn't real! That was just for pretends."
JJ: "Oh yeah, well I'm the champion and I'm gonna beat you for real."
RE: "Stop saying that! Get off my phone white boy!"
JJ: "Hey! Hey... he called me a white boy! That's racist! Someone pay attention to me! Rashad said something racist to me!"
RE: "Did not! He's making it up."
JJ: "No I'm not. See, it's right here. It says White Boy. See!"
 
I miss Chael so much right now.
welderfitter- May 21, 2011 at 5:47 pm
he is bashing white people when he says that. I dont understand why some people in minority races think its impossible for them to be racist.

Oh and by the way. Jones may be childish outside the cage but damn I love to see him fight. He's the most exciting thing to come along in a long time. As for Rashad, well listen, let me make something clear. I have no preconceived notions about feminine hygiene products as a whole, and I'm sorry for having to say this because I know it will be shocking, but Rashad is a douche. There I said it. He's a douche. I know, my posts are getting way to controversial and I'll probably get banned or something.
rite leg ospitahl- May 21, 2011 at 5:04 pm
That one might get removed...lol. but agreed I hate more than anything when a son of a Bitch is the worst guy but wins fights. I hate gsp becuz he's to damn nice and a boring fighter. And I hate bones jones becuz he talks to much shit and beats the fuck out of people. Im such a lame ass hypocrite
fatbellyfrank- May 21, 2011 at 4:59 pm
Fuck this gets confusing, Shad, can't you just call him a fucktard and we all get the connotations with that one, white boy this, nigga that, you wouldn't know if yer about to get shot or get a drink bought for ya
ShortBus- May 21, 2011 at 4:55 pm
I'm a white guy and I'm not racist. I am however prejudiced against all kinds of stupid fucking people and those people come in different colors where certain insults are appropriate and fit. A rose by any other name is a rose. Not all flowers are roses but all roses are flowers just as some black people are niggers and some white people are trailer trash or inbred hillbilly's and so on. These "racial" words don't describe skin color they describe a mentality or behavior. They describe a stereotype. Stereotypes exist for a reason and every race has their stereotypes. Now, regarding Rashad's comment to Jones, I don't see that as racist. I see it as the insult it was meant to be but I don't see Rashad hating all white people or the whole race. That's racism. Rashad is pissed at Jones; what kind of insult is he supposed to use that he hopes will sting enough to get under Jones skin or offend him personally? I think "fake ass white boy" would do it and I'm thinking this probably isn't the first time Jones has been called this. Look, let's be honest. The fact that Jones even released this pic to the MMA community pretty much validates Rashad's insult because that's a pretty pussy-ass-whiteboy-bitch move if you ask me. Jones is tattlin' on Rashad. Nigga please.

Aww he shortchanged you on your skin's melanin content and you get upset when you're dating a white girl? Nutpuncher 9K hit it spot on: this kid comes off more childish and naive the more attention he gets. What did Jones hope to get out of this? He pretty much lost his street cred when he said he's snitch on if there was pot at a party and now he wants us to feel bad he got insulted by a guy he agreed to fight. The publicity stunt before the Shogun fight was the last straw for me. Kid needs to keep his mouth shut and head down. Jones' immaturity outside the cage belittles his achievements inside of it.

Why is Jones so offended by this; what's wrong with being white? Suga made an inaccurate statement but Jones is the one who decided that being white carried with it a negative connotation. Quit being such a racist snitch!

^ Sorry dude,have to get my sarcasm receptors re tuned,and yer wordly dude, anyone who can come up witha code for prostitution off the top of their head gets two thumbs up from me, and dont worry, you wont here from machineboi until the next peice of supposed racial bullshit, hes the type who "wouldn't back up your neighbours driveway". We need to find something we can go back n forth on without it becoming a love in.

mad fly asian*
rite leg ospitahl- May 21, 2011 at 4:22 pm
franklin u have to have the worst sarcasm receptors... yet again me and u end up debating on a topic we agree on. i hate having agree-fests with u. i wanted machine boi to step up to the plate on this one, but oh well. just like his type... "loud as a motor bike, but wouldnt bust a grape in a fruit fight" (dont worry about that franklin u wont get it) or maybe hes to busy studing up on all the cultures of the world and colors of the rainbow. seeing as how he's so much more worldly and enlightened then say myself. then again he could be trying trying to run up on some made fly asian sluts with his two forementioned vietnamese friends.
BaghdadBob- May 21, 2011 at 4:21 pm
Is Jon Jones 12 years old?
Nut Puncher 9000- May 21, 2011 at 4:17 pm
This entire thing is getting ridiculous. The more media exposure Jon Jones receives, the more he makes himself look young, naive, and unable to handle it.
PauliostheGreat- May 21, 2011 at 4:15 pm
By the way I doubt Jones is scared of Rashad. I think he would murder Rashad.
PauliostheGreat- May 21, 2011 at 4:13 pm
I believe you were just talking out of your ass and are now trying to explain yourself but its ok.
fatbellyfrank- May 21, 2011 at 4:10 pm
@ rite leg,nope all white people are not grouped into one culture, tell a Northern Italian his culture is exactly the same as an englishmans just because they're white. I have no great knowledge of American street or hood culture because its not something I get exposed to, or have a huge amount of interest in. My daughters keep up with all that thing from TV shows and I just dont bother, not sure if i proved anyones point but there you go. My main point with Machineboi,( and i didn't see it as wildly aggresive, but everyone has different reactions) Is that of the last , say five posts I've seen from him here, its always on the race related topics, and always anti caucasioan, I've never seen him post a comment just based on fights or fighters, so for what its worth thats where i'm coming from there.
