Although Tito Ortiz may be a few more wins away from a shot at the UFC Light Heavyweight title, Rashad Evans needs just one win, against Ortiz, before he can claim his shot.
UFC President Dana White has already stated that if Evans gets passed Ortiz in August, he_ll be first in line for the winner of Jon Jones Vs. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.
Evans talked about that bout this week and gave his thoughts on why he feels Rampage won_t win the title:
â€œI think itâ€™s going to be Jon Jones,â€ Evans told MMAWeekly Radio when asked to predict a winner. â€œI would like to see Rampage catch him with something, but I honestly believe Rampage is not doing what he needs to do, and heâ€™s not going to do what he needs to do to win the title.â€
â€œHeâ€™s just been living off of fumes of his Pride days", Evans continued "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 ainâ€™t trying to take nothing serious.â€
