MMA Heat’s Karyn Bryant caught up with Rashad Evans to get clarification on the former UFC light heavyweight champion’s recent comments that he is considering leaving Team Jackson due to the rift that was created by Jon Jones snaking his title shot away from him.
Evans pulled no punches and his response which left nothing up to interpretation.
“What’s gonna happen is, the teams are gonna split apart. If I know there’s a chance I’m training with Jon and Greg’s training with Jon, I’m not gonna train with Greg any more, EVER again. Because I need my coach to always be able to coach me no matter who I’m gonna fight. If he can’t do that, I don’t feel that there’s a use for me having him as my coach.”
I guess Rashad doesn’t remember how giving Jackson an ultimatum worked out for Diego when GSP became the apple of the Albuquerque trainer’s eye.
