Default Will Jones vs Evans open the door to other teamates fighting?

Will the title fight between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans open the door to other teamates fighting each other like Anderson/Machida?

Totally depends on the two fighters I guess. But I doubt we'll see LM v AS personally

It's seemed obvious to me for years that the issue of teammates refusing to fight each other in MMA was going to come to a head sooner or later. I think that in the coming years there are going to be several other guys who will be faced with the prospect choosing to fight a teammate or getting cut by the UFC.

It's really not pleasant to be forced to fight a good friend, but MMA is business as well as a sport. There are plenty of cases of current or former sparring partners fighting each other in boxing. I don't think that it should be this big of a deal.

I dont know it doesnt seem like these guys are as close as the likes of Machida-Silva, Fitch-Koscheck and others who straightup refuse any fight talks.
