Sonnen vs JDS!! Sonnen vs Edgar !!!

The guy just trolls himself into tittle shots, doesn't matter the weight class.

I mean, i am 6ft 11 52 kilos, 112lbs .. A man of my stature should be the only fighter allowed to bounce from weight class to weight class like Sonnen does

Sonnen is not going to "pound his way to Jones" he probably wont beat any of the top five or six fighters at 205. Running his mouth is the only way he can get the title shot and he knows it.

P.S. hill looks unhealthy.

Some bad-mouthers say that's probably the reason his leg got split in two after getting kicked.

This makes no sense.

Dana is saying he wasn't ready to fight at 152, but blaming Jones for not fighting Chael at 151.
Sure, Chael may not have been given the offer for 152. I'm not putting this on him.

But for Dana to pretend Chael was ready for 151 but isn't ready for 152 is just complete bullshit and total hypocrisy. It's why I have no sympathy for him when shit like this happens.

As far as I am concerned the 153 mess is Karma to Dana for blaming 151 on Jones.

To be honest, I am surprised Dana didn't blame the mess of 153 on JBJ as well. All the UFC's problems are JBJ's fault. It has nothing to do with Dana and the way they treat their fighters.
