Fair enough, but Chael would get beat badly by everyone Jones has fought for the title so far.
We'll agree to disagree. I think Sonnen would maul Shogun and Vitor with his wrestling, and at this stage, he'd beat sluggish Evans and over-the-hill Rampage. I do agree that he'd have some 'figuring out' to do with Machida, but he'd probably just employ the same game plan a soft and lazy Rampage did and control Lyoto against the cage.
Come to think of it, I'd be confident choosing Sonnen over ALL of Jones' previous opponents.
