Jon Jones Asks Rashad Evans If He Is Becoming A “Brother” To Vitor Belfort

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones appears to be back to his old Twitter self. After all the issues surrounding the cancellation of UFC 151, Jones fired off a sarcastic question towards Rashad Evans Wednesday.

Jones is currently set to defend his title against Vitor Belfort on September 22 in the main event of UFC 152: Jones vs. Belfort. Recently, Belfort confirmed that he will be working with Evans and the Blackzilians in Florida as he prepares for the fight.

“(Evans) are you and Vitor becoming brothers like we were, or are you a middle weight now?” Jones asked.

Jones and Evans were teammates and frequent training partners in New Mexico with Greg Jackson. After Jones became the champion – a fight in which he replaced Evans – “Suga” left the team and headed to Florida. Jones earned a decision victory over Evans earlier this year.
