no, I think Greg Jackson broke the honour code by saying he wouldn't corner rashad. I have no problem with teammates fighting each other, as long as the junior (in terms of time spent at the gym, not age or time spent in the octagon) is asked to leave the gym and train elsewhere for at least that training camp



I disagree. How is there seniority in a gym that you PAY to be a part of? This isn't a dojo, it's a professional training facility, and if Evans has a problem, he can take his money elsewhere.

^^ Agree This is what Rashad is doing, I think Jones was out of line for saying he would fight Rashad, the camp has a known agreement.
with that being said I think Jackson is the problem, if you are going to implement a rule where there not supposed to fight each other, you need to make it clear that new fighters will have to leave the camp if they want to fight senior fighters.
