Trainer-to-the-champions Greg Jackson has plenty of feelings still for Rashad Evans.
After seeing his star pupil, Jon Jones, defeat Evans and retain the UFC light heavyweight championship at UFC 145, Jackson talked with Sherdog’s “Savage Dog Show” about everything that went down between the two former teammates.
“It was a bittersweet night. I’m glad Jon won, but I’m just sad about the whole situation. It’s nice to just kind of move on and be done with the whole thing. I went up after the fight and shook (Evans’) hand, and we kind of patted each other on the shoulder. That’s kind of where we’re at right now. There’s no animosity or hard feelings on my end at all.”
The falling out between Jones, Evans and Jackson has been well-documented, as the three were all together just over a year ago in New Mexico at Jackson’s MMA.
Evans kind of talked about all the issues being more about Jackson than Jones in the days before the fight, which makes it seem highly unlikely that the two sides will ever sit down for a nice seafood dinner in the near future.
