UFC 145 didn’t go Rashad Evans’ way, but he’s not crying over spilled milk. He’s happy to pay credit where credit’s due, and that’s to his opponent Jon Jones.

Evans battled with his former training partner for 25 minutes, but couldn’t come up with strategy to put away the UFC’s reigning light heavyweight champion.

After the fight, Evans fielded questions from reporters about his fight with Jones and what could be potentially next on deck for the former Ultimate Fighter winner.
