We all know what Sonnen is going to do, but Jones faced opponents who had the same idea but couldnt do it. What can Chael do than say Rashad could not do? I can only see this ending badly for Sonnen. Once he realized he cant take Jon down and his only method of winning is out the window, he is going to panic and perhaps throw a spinning back fist again.
Its not about what Rashad couldn't do but more so what he didn't even try to do. Rashad didn't really try and wrestle at all he just kept playing that hand tapping elbow eating game plan. It was like he was trying to implement a game plan of getting Jones to break an elbow on his head.
