I mean after all, he is the ONLY 1 who gave P4P King Anderson Silva his toughest challenge to date (yes...I know is at MW and he got finished). Cheal is a fighter that doesnt mind getting hit to hit his opponent. Jones won't be able to use his reach to keep Sonnen at bay and it will be interesting to see how Jones deal with Sonnens relentless takedown.
The beating Jones is going to give Sonnen will retire him. JBJ's reach is a massive factor against everyone.

I'd be all over Jones-Machida.

Not really sure....Do you mean you couldn't care less? Also, do not really understand bolded part. Why put anymore on the end? Not dissing, just asking.

Anyway

So (potential) contenders for LHW title this year are..

Sonnen
Gustaf
Comier
Machida
Hendo

Bones wants to fight at HW in 2014 so I imagine theres gonna be tears before the year ends.

I'm with the guy saying he isn't completley ruling Sonnen out. The problem before was Belfort/Machida/Evans etc. trying to out strike Jones, and that reach just kills it. I don't know how LHW will treat him, but at MW I think Sonnen can take literally anybody down without too much hastle, and his biggest threat then is simple submissions. Jones hasn't really been on his back so who knows if he has much BJJ offence, but if Sonnen's weight is a bonus rather than a negative and he's able to drag this one down, I actually might be edging Sonnen to do what he failed against Anderson the first time.



Thanks to Ape for the sig.

People need to chill out, it's not like DW confirmed that Cormier is getting the shot here, so lets all take a deep breath.

I think Cormier would have to fight a top 5 LHW to get the shot.
