UFC president Dana White said on Thursday that if Rashad Evans is victorious against Tito Ortiz at UFC 133, Evans is guaranteed the winner of the upcoming fight at UFC 135 between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Rampage Jackson. Thus Evans has a whole new vested interest in Jones vs. Rampage.
“I think it’s going to be Jon Jones,” Evans told MMAWeekly Radio when asked to predict a winner. “I would like to see Rampage catch him with something, but I honestly believe Rampage is not doing what he needs to do, and he’s not going to do what he needs to do to win the title.”
“He’s just been living off of fumes of his Pride days, and he really needs to go and take things seriously. If he took things seriously, I think he might be able to do something, but he ain’t trying to take nothing serious.”
