Jon Jones Says He Could Have Finished Rashad Evans In Training
The war of words between champion and challenger is likely about to heat up as Jon Jones broke what some may say is the cardinal rule of a team, what happens in practice stays in practice, talking to ESPN's Josh Gross about what has gone on in sparring session between himself and Rashad Evans:
"We fought each other in practice," said Jones, who pushed his record to 13-1 with last month's triumph. "A finish has been possible several times and it has always been me finishing him. I never did it out of respect that he was the elder of the school. It's against protocol in a way. Some people would do it but I believe in tradition.
"He has a lot to study. I have a lot to study, but I get to study[ing] more in-depth. He gets to study[ing] and gets a headache."
