Close Up: Rashad Evans

The rivalry between former teammates Rashad Evans and UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is one of the most heated in mixed martial arts. But Evans seems to fave mellowed on the rivalry just a bit.

“Jon Jones can’t help but jack my swagger. At first I was kind of bothered by it, but now I’m kind of flattered. He’s the champion; he’s copying me. He’s jacking my swagger and he doesn’t even know he’s jacking my swagger. He looks up to me that much,” Evans said in a recent interview with content partners Whoa! TV and Bleacher Report.
