One of the most heavily-anticipated matchups of the second half of the year is off; Jon Jones will no longer be facing Rashad Evans. The UFC light heavyweight champion was struck with a hand injury in his title-winning fight against Maurício Shogun and will likely go under the knife.
So in comes Phil Davis as Rashad’s opponent at the August 6 UFC 133 show in Philadelphia, where Vitor Belfort is set to face Yoshihiro Akiyama.

“Win and win, that’s what I was born to do. I’m proof dreams can come true. If you’ve got the heart and will, don’t give up!” says the champ in GRACIEMAG 170.
