Jon Jones Done Talking About Rashad Evans, Focused On “Shogun” - NEWS

The Ultimate Fighting Championship held a conference call on Wednesday for their upcoming UFC 128: Shogun vs. Jones event which included all four headliners, UFC light heavyweight champ Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, top contender Jon “Bones” Jones, former WEC champ Urijah Faber, and his opponent Eddie Wineland.

UFC 128 is set to take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday, March 19.

Of course a lot of the media focus was placed on both Rua and Jones concerning their upcoming title bout, but it was Jones who appeared to field most of the questions.

One question that has come up endlessly for Jones, is a possible title defense against his friend Rashad Evans should he defeat Rua. During the media call, Jones made it very clear that he will not be taking anymore questions concerning that issue and is strictly focused on facing “Shogun” for the UFC light heavyweight title.
