Please explain how the fight had no chance of happening. Sure, when you say it, it is meaningless because you have no chance of fighting JJ. Chael would be fighting JJ right now if JJ had accepted. How exactly would Sonnen know that Jones would decline? It clearly had a chance of happening.
I figured there would be at least one, may two, definitely one, so I am prepared for this.
Please reread my comment. I never said "The fight 9 Days out" had no chance of happening. I very specifically, and extremely obviously referred to the statement Chael made when he said he would fly to Vegas "Right now, that night" and fight Jones. And Dana and other people have been blowing smoke up his ass for making that statement.
My point was, there was no chance in hell, in heaven, in space, in crypton, in narnia or in Mordor that Chael and Jones would fight right then or the next day. That's a completely hollow statement because it could never happen. So for anyone to praise him for saying it, is completely lame.
Again, it's like me saying I would fight Anderson Silva right now. So what? it obviously won't happen so who cares if I say I would do it?
I made no mention of the actual fight not happening 8 days later. Although, I do believe Chael knew Jones would never agree to it, and in all honesty. Chael probably took a deep sign of relief when Jones said no. As soon as Jones said no, he won't fight him, Chael was like, perfect, that's what I was hoping you would say and now my promotional WWE style plan is ready to go. In his mind, Chael is really saying, Thank God that Jones said no, because that dude would wreck me.
