What is the purpose of this?

Sonnen ain't taking bones down. He ain't knocking him out. He ain't submiting him. What's the point?

I said the same thing when i was wondering why Jones would turn down the fight.

But realistically MMA always has an X factor. And that in itself wants to make me watch Sonnen fight Jones.

Most people didnt expect Sonnen/Silva to go the way it did. So i think Sonnen can surprise us.

That logic.. What's the point of challenging GSP? Noone is beating him. Might as well retire as the undisputed king of WW then.

Averybody can be beat.

Coming of a loss in a weight class below, he should first get at least about 2-3 GOOD wins before getting a title shot. A win over an over the hill half retired Griffin shouldn't be enough. No trashtalking to title shots please!

If Sonnen does end up getting a shot (and I think, ratings wise, Dana REALLY wants to make this fight) it'll be via Griffin and Rua. Personally I think he beats both, but really only these to to 'legitimately' earn a shot. Machida would most likely brutalise him = no shot = no $$$.

If he really destroys Forrest they could push him into a shot, and it'd probably be accepted too. It's crazy really, to think in just a few years Sonnen went from relatively unknown to 2 shots against Silva and almost talking him way into a LHW shot too.

If he faces Jones, it'll be after defeating Griffin a Rua (regardless, I feel, of the outcome of Rua v Gustaf)
