most recent image I could find. This forum and the mma community at large will implode if Sonnen beats Jones. He'll definitely be the best wrestler Jones has ever fought, if Sonnen is big enough to wrestle Jones down it could be interesting.

He only managed to get Bisping down significantly twice so who do you think has better wrestling Bisping... or Jones.

I think his diet works, Alves hasn't missed weight since pairing up with him but I have to take anything he says with a grain of salt because he's promoting his diet after all. Seems like a cool dude though, he was on Rogan's podcast a while back.
Alves almost missed weight at UFC 138 and Dolce blamed it on the scale that was supposedly broken for Alves but not for everyone else. I think this guy is full of shit.

They have completely different wrestling.

Chael has probably the BEST power double currently in MMA but he does not set it up. A Power Double that you see coming is not very hard to defend. Which is why his wrestling is so impressive. Most power doubles without being set up would be stopped 4 out of 5 times. Chael on the other hand succeeds 1 out of 2 times.

Jones uses his trips and throws to take people down. His shot isnt anywhere near the level of Chaels. On the other hand his trips and throws are light years ahead of Chaels.

Its apple to oranges. They both can take each other down.


Chael struggled taking Bisping down but Jones struggled taking Rampage down. While Bader had no problem taking Rampage down.

Its all about styles. Chaels wrestling works better against some and Jones wrestling works better against others.

Id bet the house that Chaels wrestling would be horrible against Machida but Jones trips would work wonders.
