RASHAD EVANS SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT ON RECENT CONFRONTATION WITH JON JONES – THIS FRIDAY ON HDNET’S “INSIDE MMA”
Plus Jon Fitch, Mark Munoz, and Daniel Cormier – Friday at 9:00 p.m. ET on HDNet
DALLAS (May 19, 2011)—On this week;s edition of HDNet’s “Inside MMA” “Sugar” Rashad Evans joins Kenny Rice as guest host. The outspoken former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion is currently embroiled in the hottest feud in MMA with his former teammate and current UFC champ Jon Jones.
The two were set to tango later this year before Jones pulled out of the fight due to an injury that was believed to require surgery. The surgery was subsequently canceled and Evans has not been shy about accusing Jones of using the injury to duck a fight with him.
Tension between the two reportedly came to a head at a nightclub in Las Vegas last week. We’ll share the story straight from the horse’s mouth as Rashad tells us what really happened during their impromptu meeting.
Before Evans gets a chance to settle that score, he’ll step into the octagon with Phil Davis at UFC 133, and “Sugar” gives us the scoop on his plans for “Mr. Wonderful.”
Also on the panel this week, Jon Fitch, Mark Munoz, and Daniel Cormier talk about the importance of wrestling in MMA and we’ll take a look at the USA vs. Russia wrestling meet that recently took place in Times Square.
Then we get the scoop from the panel on their upcoming fights. Fitch says that there are only two fights that make sense for him, while Munoz and Cormier preview their scheduled fights.
Plus Ron Kruck continues his look “Inside America’s Gym” with a stop at the grand opening of the UFC Gym in Corona, CA
