“I would prefer to [win the title] from Jones." --- Rashad Evans, UFC Light Heavyweight fighter

While many thought that might be rusty after 14 months of being in the sideline, many were surprised on how he was able to dismantle at last Saturday.

The latter stepped in to face Rashad Evans, after and Phil Davis withdrew from the bout due to injury. And now that he gained victory, “Suga” want to reclaim his title from former friend and teammate . That is if the current light heavyweight champion will be able to defend his belt against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 135 in September.

“I would prefer to [win the title] from Jones. You think I’m cocky? He’s for-real cocky. He’s like go-to-sleep-praising-himself cocky. I would love to teach him a lesson. I know where Jon’s weak and he knows where I’m weak. So we’ll see who covers those [weak areas] first. If he makes it past Rampage, I’ll have a chance to do that. I think Rampage should train in my camp for this fight.”
