I cannot wait to watch Jones stomp Rashad. If you followed the story from the beginning, Rashad supposedly didn't like the fact the Jones came to train at Jackson's in the first place. What other reason would he feel that way besides that he recognized the talent in Jones and felt strongly that Jon could beat him? Maybe he feared that fact or didn't want someone to take his goldenboy status away. Rashad uses the whole "Jackson's family, don't fight teammates bullshit" but apparently not everyone at Jackson's feels that way if it's for the belt. Carlos Condit has been training at Jackson's since he was 15 and has made it clear he would fight GSP for the belt, so why couldn't Jones voice his opinion on the subject? It's true that Jon didn't go out and blatantly say he wanted to fight Rashad with ill will but just if the belt was on the line or Dana and Silva (The bosses) made the fight... Rashad has been in the wrong from the start, IMO.
I agree that Rashad has just seemed jealous the whole time. Especially after Jones actually won the belt and the way that he did it. I highly doubt Rashad would have done to Shogun what Jones did and with all the praise and glory Jones got for that, Rashad's blood probably boiled. In Rashad's shoes and judging from his personality, it's hard to imagine he isn't full of envy. I would respect him if he just admitted that but the way he's playing it just adds more reason to why I can't stand him as a person.
I wish the titlefight was Jones/Evans, not Rampage. This fight needs to happen! I'm tired of the bickering. I imagine it's going to be one of the greatest LHW title fights to date. It's amusing though that Rashad offered to train Rampage and hopes that he wins the fight. Why wouldn't Rashad want to fight Jones for the title??
