Sonnen sells PPV(s), that is why he was offered this fight. No other reason. He didn't call up DW and offered to fight, he was asked by DW to help save the card. Jones' on the other hand, would rather sink a card than fight. That says a lot about him.

Guessing by default as no one wants the fight, plus he has a history at 205. I bet they did not ask rampage as he could leave the ufc with the belt. But Vitor is a household name and will sell ppv.

Vitor is going to be a popular boy in the coming weeks.

Words can't express the joy i'd feel if Bones got knocked the **** out by a vicious Vitor combo.

Honestly Vitor has a better chance than Shogun because he has similar grappling credentials and is of a similar size but he has more power in his hands and is a hell of a lot more dynamic at this point than Shogun.

Very diabolical individual who also happens to be extremely intelligent, understands battle tactics and strategies, and is willing to use all methods at his disposal to achieve his end goal. This also means foregoing lesser disciples (Diego, Rashad) to gain new ones who will give his camp a stronger name ultimately achieving more power, status, and money. Machiavellian don't you think...

Nothing against vitor, but Jones will beat the hell out of him. 10 inch reach and the dynamic of Jones he will likely be Front kicked again.

I do agree, but his toad-like appearance makes me think of Yoda.

I've been saying this all along. Jones specifically said on Twitter that Chaels mouth wasn't going to earn him a title shot, and he back it up. At least Vitor is coming off of two impressive wins.

Yeah Bones has thrown the teepercut a few times in his career but he really doesn't have any idea what he's doing with it. He won't set it up properly, he won't use it to counter a lunging hook.
He'll just throw it because he can and it won't be perfect like Anderson's, Vitor should win the striking battle, but like all the other potentials matchups, if Bones decides to wrestle it's probably gonna be over pretty quickly.

I don't see Vitor winning the striking battle at all, as much as I hate Jones the man is one hell of a talent. I believe he will murder vitor on the feet, however I hope vitor comes out gun blazing and head hunting as it would make it interesting. However if he just stands there he will get pick apart.
