MMA  > General MMA  > Jones Vs Evan Fued

Have any of you guys been keeping up with the fight build up? There are two really good interviews in Youtube one on sportnite and the ultimate insider. Evans basically exposes Jones to his face as a fraud and his cockyness.

Jones talks about being a great teammate in Jackson's camp and state there is no "I" in team but then turns around and says its his gym and his team now. After those 2 inteview I really don't like Jones now and hope Rashard gives him a nice whoopping.

How could Evans expose Jones as a fraud? Jones certainly didn't invent the title win and title defenses we have all watched him dominate in....

I didn't see it but read the back and forth. Jones is definitely a fraud and a phony. He's fake as hell. You know, I used to hate Frank Mir because he was so god damn arrogant, but at least he's real. Jones is arrogant as hell, and tries to say how humble and respectful he is. I can't stand fake people. He should just admit that he's arrogant, I could at least respect that he's real.

You need to go youtube and watch the interviews, they are funny and crazy. Jones was basically saying he was the Ali of MMA and was claiming to be the greatest fighter and Evans replied Ali was humbled when he was defeated. Evan said "we should all praise Jones" lol

Do you just stay all fuzzed up, or do you slap yourself when you get up so you can be mad at the world. Dude you are going to have a stroke. Take a breath feel the sunshine of your face, smell a flower, kiss a baby , by a homeless person lunch, count your medals and awards, it will make you feel better.

Let's not forget that Sugar isn't exactly the humblest man on the planet. Jones is definitely a special talent in many ways; it's nothing short of amazing that someone could make Rashad look like the good guy...

But Suga doesn't claim to be the greatest and pretend to walk on water. Jones is so full of himself. There is a line of being cocky confidence and a cocky big head. Rashard knows he can fight, Jones knows he is the best thing that has happened to mma.

I liked the part when Evans said he crawls like me. Like Jones be doing the copycat thing.

The only thing I like about Evans is his Fred Sanford imitation.

It's got to be hard to be humble when you go from "great potential" to "great" almost instantly.

Joe Rogan didn't do Jones any favors when he basically anointed him the future of MMA after the Shogun beat down.

Jones is great in the cage - Lots of unorthodox and devastating moves.

But he still comes off like an ackward teenager too often. Comparing himself to Ali is beyond ridiculous.

Its true. Jones did copy that from Evans.

Didn't Evans copy it from Spider?

ironically, Ali said a lot of ridiculous things just to push his opponent's buttons....

I gotta wonder, how many people here would still be all that humble if their past year contained a thrashing of highly touted prospect Bader, dominating finish of Rua for the title, jacked up former title holder Road Rage to defend the title, and choked out former title holder Lyoto Machida to defend the title again? I doubt too many of us would be able to prevent it from making us a little arrogant or cocky...you already have people here bragging about master's degrees as if they were rare...

But like Rashard said, even Ali was humbled.
