Manager: Rashad Evans Hasn't Left Greg Jackson's Camp

Even when he isn't fighting, Chael Sonnen figures out a way to stir the pot.

Late Monday night, Sonnen tweeted that Rashad Evans had left "Jackson's." Most assumed he meant Greg Jackson's team in New Mexico.

However, Evans' manager, Glenn Robinson of Authentic Sports Management, told MMA Fighting on Tuesday that his client was still a part of Team Jackson.

"[Evans] hasn't decided what he is going to do with training," Robinson said.

Robinson added that Evans is waiting to see what happens on Saturday night when his training partner and friend Jon Jones fights Mauricio "Shogun" Rua for the UFC light heavyweight title. Should Jones win, UFC president Dana White has said that he would like to see Evans challenge Jones for the belt, and both fighters have begun to warm up to the idea of facing each other in the future.

"If they decided to fight, obviously they both can't train at the same place," Robinson said.

The manager also added that Evans wasn't sure if he would just train at Grudge Training Center in Colorado for the potential Jones fight or if he would set up shop at a new camp.

Evans was forced to pull out of the UFC 128 main event after suffering a knee injury in training. Robinson said "Suga" was officially cleared to train by doctors on Sunday.

So Evans is still a part of Team Jackson for now, but if the UFC books Jones vs. Evans, someone is going to have to prepare for the fight with a new team. If Jones loses on Saturday night, this all becomes a moot point.
