"Mentally, I know it’s a little rough for [Evans] to see one of the guys he made a pact with to not fight go out there and take his position… I had the conversation with Rashad that I felt Rashad should fight Jon Jones if he wins, I feel Jon Jones could have been like, ‘Hey man, I’ll tell you what. I’m going to take another fight. And let Rashad… he’s not at the beginning of his career. He’s at the peak and the tail end of it. Let him go fight for it. It makes for a great fight. I think Rashad’s got the speed to do it. I think it’s just one of those things [that] makes for great media. To see two guys go out there, you’re fighting to make a legacy. You’re going out there and fighting one of your training partners: I think it’s a great thing. I think it’s great for the sport. I know Greg feels differently about it than I do. I love Greg to death. Everybody has their own ways on how they do things, and this is just my little thought on how it should work."

Trevor Wittman runs the Grudge Training Center and is one of Rashad Evans coaches along with many other MMA stars. He states his position on whether not teammates should be fighting. What do you think Maniac's should the training partners and friends square off against each other? Or should Evans keep the pact with Jones to never fight each other?
