Rashad: Hate me now
Jon Jones is being marketed as Ali, while Rashad is being marketed as? I’m not sure if there is a specific figure or idea aside from the ‘they once were friends and training partners’ angle for Rashad. I’m glad they aren’t trying to fashion Rashad as Frazier in this instance. The Ali/Frazier rivalry was amazing in the ring, outside of the ring, it was ugly and hurt Frazier and his family in ways many of us could never imagine.
I gotta say, at this point, I’m not a fan of either fighter, I’m a fan of their skills, and I want Jones to win. If only for there to be a dominant fighter at the LHW division and I want to see Hendo face Jones, I’m not interested in a Rashad vs. Hendo scenario at the moment.
