Video: UFC 145's Jon Jones and Rashad Evans breakdown Shaq vs Charles Barkley NBA fights

The promotion for UFC 145: "Jones vs. Evans," which takes place tonight (Sat., April 21, 2012) live from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga., on pay-per-view (PPV) has been heavy this past week as we count down the hours until the big event.

The show's headliners, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and number one contender Rashad Evans, have been making the media rounds from ESPN Sportscenter all the way to TNT's Inside the NBA.

In the above video, the two elite mixed martial artists (MMA) chat with former NBA greats Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley. Or, rather, they help break down a few of the fights the two found themselves involved in throughout their illustrious hardwood careers. That includes a couple showdowns against each other.

O'Neal has long flirted with the idea of moving to MMA, most notably challenging Hong Man Choi to a match. He's also said he would be more than willing to toss Jose Canseco around a cage. Hell, even UFC President Dana White said he would bring Shaq on board with the UFC, though not as an active fighter, of course.

Judging by his form in his NBA fights, he wouldn't last long anyway.
