Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans: The History of the Beef

Teammates Under Greg Jackson

Date: August 2008
Before the beef, Bones and Rashad were teammates and friends under coach Greg Jackson in New Mexico. Initially, Rashad was against Jones joining the team because he was an elite prospect in the same division. Greg Jackson spoke to him and it was established they would never fight so Evans gave the addition his blessing. After some time the two developed a friendship and made a pact never to fight each other.
