The UFC is first a business, and if they don't give Chael a shot at Jones after he beats Forrest, they're fools... it will be larger than UFC 100, I'm sure of it.
Silva/Sonnen II didn't even top UFC 100 and that had years of trash talk, the first fight and everything else going for it. The only thing that has a shot of topping that is Anderson/GSP or Jones/Silva.
Those numbers aren't bad, all things considered, Jones was fighting a middleweight and MMA fans have yet to embrace and probably won't embrace the lighter weights not to mention MMA is in a slight decline in the US so those numbers are alright with me.
