What will Rashad Evans say to Jon Jones if he confronts him inside the cage on Saturday night?

Will Jon Jones (left) confront Rashad Evans in Chicago?

You know the deal by now.

When Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) declares a new division number one contender, they trot him into the Octagon post-fight to confront the champion for a brief staredown.

Or sometimes, it's the other way around.

Sort of how they did with Rashad Evans, bringing him into the cage in the aftermath of UFC 128 to have a brief face off against Jon Jones, who won the light heavyweight title by destroying Mauricio Rua.

Now the roles may be reversed if Evans can defeat Phil Davis at UFC on Fox 2 this Saturday night (Jan. 28, 2012) at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. "Bones" may be the post-fight interloper.

If so, what will "Suga" tell him?

Via MMA Weekly:

"If he steps into the cage, I won't say nothin' stupid like, 'You're ruining my night! You're ruining my special night, Jon!' I'm not gonna say that. It's immature, it's childish. That's it."

Evans is referring to comments Jones made about his former training partner "ruining his special night" on two separate occasions by being asked to step into the cage.

From his UFC 135 remarks:

"No, I'm sure he's got a lot to say and he's going to do a lot of talking. I'm not going to say anything, I promise you guys, leading up to this fight I'm not going to say much. I'm just going to prove it. He's ruined my special night twice now. The time will come."

None of this means anything if Evans can't get past "Mr. Wonderful," who may ruin a few nights of his own with a win in "The Windy City." Anyone predicting an upset?

Here's Evans' take:
