ESPN MMA Live 147: Dana White Talks Strikeforce, Confirms Rashad Evans As Number One Contender

On this week’s edition of ESPN MMA Live, Jon Anik and crew are joined by UFC president Dana White to talk about the UFC-Strikeforce acquisition. Dana reaffirms that Rashad Evans will fight the Shogun Rua vs. Jon Jones winner for the title assuming they leave UFC 128 uninjured.

Jon Jones also joined the show to talk about his fight with Shogun. In attempt to get their issues out in the open, Rashad Evans straight up asked Jones how he felt about the possibility of fighting him and the things they’ve said in recent interviews. Jones basically blamed it on the media, claimed they twisted their words and said all he’s focused on now is Shogun.
