Rashad Evans was supposed to be fighting Shogun Rua for the UFC LHW title next month at UFC 128, but a knee injury has forced him out of the bout.   In his place will be Jon "Bones" Jones, a teammate of Rashad's at Team Jackson.  Rashad has stated that he would never fight Jones, because they're friends and teammates, and that if Jones wins against Shogun, Evans would either move up to HW or down to MW.

When questioned about this, UFC President Dana White seemed a bit frustrated at all the "friends can't fight friends" business.  He said:


Dude, you have way too many friends...you need to keep the friends thing down and stop training with people.

Dana also said he thought Rashad's decision to sit out a year waiting for the Shogun fight was "crazy."  Check out the complete video interview.
