No balls necessary, anybody with a brain would have done the same in Sonnen's position.
Yeah stepping in to a fight with Jon Jones on 8 days notice would take no guts. He's moving up a weight class on 8 days notice, and while he would have a chance to win a title he also has a great chance to take a monumental ass kicking. Give your head a shake.
