Rashad Evans says changing weight class if Jon Jones becomes champ

Following the announcement of Rashad Evans forced out of his title shot against Shogun Rua due to injury, and  his training partner Jon Jones replacing him,  Evans has announced that he will change weight class should Jones win the belt. Via MMA Live:

“I’m happy for Jones, I think it’s a great fight for him. I think Jones is going to smash Rua.”

“Training with Jones in practice, he’s one of the best guys I’ve ever trained with. The level he’s gotten to so fast is scary and alarming. He’s one of those guys at the gym, he’ll be the first one there and the last one to leave. … He’s hungry, he wants it, so I’m glad if it’s going to be someone to step into my place, I’m glad it’s him.”

“I’m still not going to fight Jon. I will always find something to challenge myself. I will go up to heavyweight or down to middleweight. But I will not fight Jon.”
