Jon Jones: 'I will never fight Rashad Evans'

Quoteworthy:

"Absolutely not. If Rashad Evans won the belt, which I'm hoping he does, my only goal would be to be the toughest contender there is, and keep whipping butt without being champion. I'd stay at 205 and be the second best. That would be my goal. As I said, I'm hoping he wins, we're very proud of him. I couldn't [fight him], he's my mate. All my dreams and aspirations are in the light-heavyweight division, and I'm growing and getting older, but I have quite some time left in the light-heavyweight division. I have a good work ethic because of the wrestling, cutting weight comes easily to me, so I'll wait until weight-cutting becomes miserable before I step up."

UFC light heavyweight contender Jon Jones is pulling for Rashad Evans when "Suga" faces Mauricio Rua in Spring 2011 -- even if it means he never gets a title shot while Evans is champion. Of course "Bones" has to first get past Ryan Bader on Feb. 5 to even be considered for a title bout, but if he does, can he put an end to the "Shogun" era? Or will Evans hold the title hostage for the immediate future? And what will Dana White have to say about Jon Jones taking over for Keith Jardine in the "I won't fight Rashad" fan club?
