Rashad Evans Wants Rematches With Jones, Machida In The Future

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans has two fighters on his mind while he continues to wait for his next opponent: Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida.

The two are the lone men to defeat “Suga” inside the Octagon, as Jones scored a decision victory over Evans earlier this year to defend the UFC belt, while “The Dragon” knocked him out in winning the belt in a previous encounter.

“I would like to avenge my loss to Jones one day, but also to Machida,” said Evans, while appearing on the 790 The Ticket show. “Last time (Machida) got me pretty good, and all those internet pictures of me getting knocked out all over the internet.”

The loss to Jones, a former training partner with Evans at Jackson MMA, left him, “(feeling) like I had been in a car accident,” said Evans, in regards to the physical and mental pains he was left with.

As for his immediate future, it seem likely that Evans will not get the chance to face either Jones or Machida, as Jones is set to face Dan Henderson at UFC 151 and Machida is locked in to battle Ryan Bader at UFC on FOX 4.
