Believe Your Eyes: Jon Jones UFC 145 promo for Rashad Evans fight (Video)

Far be it from the UFC to get all artsy fartsy on us but this promo for Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and his upcoming title defense against Rashad Evans at UFC 145 on April 21, 2012, in Atlanta, Georgia, is incredible.

It's a far cry from the in-your-face, assault on your senses style we've come to know from the world's largest fight promotion. It's clear they want to showcase "Bones" as the next big star in mixed martial arts (MMA). It's tough to blame them when the 24-year-old phenom has accomplished more in a few years than most do in a lifetime.

If you're worried UFC is showing some favoritism here, don't be. Company co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta tweeted word that Rashad Evans will get a similar treatment before we see the most highly anticipated match-up of the year.
