The next pivotal moment in this history of beef was the day Jones beat Shogun to become the youngest UFC Light Heavyweight Champion ever. Bones dismantled Shogun and landed a KO in the third round from a series of punches and knees to the head. After the fight, Rashad was brought into the octagon by the UFC to announce that he would be the next man to face Jones. Both men were rattled. There was also a major riff between Rashad and the Jackson team which prompted him to announce that he was leaving the team to form the Blackzillians. Somehow this all seemed like a precursor to an epic show down.
