Fail isn't a qualified contender at 205, I don't think he can be. He doesn't deserve a title shot, but I think he'll get one if he sneaks by Forrest. But..., that's a big if. However, I would love to see Fail fight Bones. Bones dominates Fail wherever the fight goes. Fail's only strength is Wrestling and Bones is the bigger, stronger, more talented Wrestler. I would thoroughly enjoy watching Bones annihilate that turd for a round or 2, then finish him with a **** choke.

I wonder if chael can get him down...he has that tough style to fight since he goes in like crazy and its really hard to fight guys like that, most guys JBJ fights just stand there watching him...same thing with Anderson and GSP...thats why andy had a hard time with chael and why i think GSP will have a hard time with diaz and condit

shogun is the only guy at LHW that goes in crazy..and hendo but sometimes hendo plays it a little safe..but shogun cant beat JBJ going crazy, he needs to destroy his legs with inside leg kicks

anyway...it would be an interesting fight, though JBJ would probably dominate chael

Jones probably will man handle Sonnen if they fight, but it'd be interesting to see how Jones reacts to everything Chael would say about him, Chael just constantly spouts out shit and Jones while he's an awesome fighter does seem a wee bit fragile mentally.

yeah thats true...i think sonnen could really get under his skin and maybe get some TDs if JBJ gets too reckless with those flying knees and spinning elbows...but i think even if sonnen did manage to take JBJ down i see JBJ getting a pretty easy triangle

remember him pulling guard on rampage? almost had that triangle...i dont see any possible way sonnen could beat him

he was qualified when he fought Anderson Silva this last time....I'm saying he is no longer qualified to fight MW champ right now.

He would need to fight his way back to top contention.

He definitely is not qualified to fight the LHW chap right now.


Look, I like Chael...he put up a good fight against Anderson....the first round last fight was awesome....but, he wouldn't be a challenge for Jones. More importantly, he doesn't come close to deserving a title shot against he middle weight champ, much less the LHW champ. It makes zero sense to put that fight on.

The problem with Chael is, his standup is horrid. HORRID. He looks like an amateur against most opponents in his standup.
If he could build his standup, he could be a serious threat. Until that happens, he needs to keep training.

Who is saying he deserves a shot at either champ currently? I'm really confused as to where you've got this whole idea from?

He lost to the MW champ twice, so now he's fighting a lower-level LHW to start over in a new division since getting a third shot in one division is almost impossible.

Yeah im really curious what the hell this thread is about...

No one thinks Chael deserves a title shot. The only reason he was offered one was due to "SPECIAL" circumstances. Normally he would never be offered a title shot and everyone knows this.

So why exactly does this thread exist?
