Jon Jones reveals he used to finish Rashad Evans when they fought during practice

UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones reveals that when he fought his old training partner and former friend, Rashad Evans he had the upper hand over him every time, with several opportunities to finish the TUF 2 champion.

Jones, speaking via ESPN.co.uk, said:

“We fought each other in practice. 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.”
