One of the biggest grudge matches in UFC history goes down next month at UFC 145, when light heavyweight champ Jon Jones takes on rival Rashad Evans.
The former training partners have become bitter enemies over the course of the past year and, after several derailments due to injury incurred by either party, will finally get to settle things in the Octagon.
Having run roughshod over the UFC light heavyweight division and impressively defeated two former champions during his title run, the 24-year-old Jones opened as a huge favorite over Evans. Some lines have the champion as much as a 6:1 favorite over Evans, a former champion.
Check out the video below, courtesy MMA:30, to hear what some of Jones and Evans’ fighting peers, as well as a few MMA pundits, give their take on the fight and the opening line.
UFC 145 goes down on April 21 at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
