Chaels wrestling is miles ahead of anyone else Jones has faced.

I wouldn't count Sonnen out. But then again, Jones' grecko is some of the best in the sport. If Jones could time his sprawl correctly, Sonnen will go for a flight... especially if you consider the size difference.

I'm pulling for Sonnen, but realistically I don't expect him to win. Jones will probably beat him everywhere except for off of his back. Even there he may have something for him.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I have never seen anyone even attempt a decent double leg on jones let alone get a hold of him at any point, sonnen at some point will do this and often he will continue with it.

The two things that make a big difference in my book is Jones' height/reach plus his Grecko.

Sonnen couldn't take Silva down in the second round of their last fight when Silva was aware of what was coming, so I can't imagine him having much success against a grecko machine like Jones. He might get him down a few times, but he will never get out of Jones' guard in any case because of those damn long legs

Yeah but silva had hold of the fence keeping him standing in the second round. For something like 20 seconds if i can remember correctly.
Chael will close the distance and get him down I think. Will be interesting to see jones off his back. You would think Silvas Jits game would be better then Jones with all the Nog training. For all we know though Jones being the freak that he is could be much harder to deal with on the ground.

I dunno.. i'm starting to think that Chael will put Bones on his back and keep him there. I'm really excited to see this fight + TUF season.

Sonnen can pass guard well now, he's still got vinny magalhaes training him and he passed andersons guard into mount in the 2nd fight as well an anderson has a black belt and a decent guard

Although chael beating jones would accomplish two things i'm very much hopping for (embarrassing jones and proving silva is goat), I just can't see how he could pull it of.

He ain't knocking anyone out with those pillows and he definitely ain't submitting jones. I fear it's gonna go down similar to rua fight. Chael will probably shoot right away, walking head first into a knee. I predict a second round finish.

Bones' timing isn't that good and he's never caught anybody while they're shooting before. One thing that strangely happens to the wrestlers that Bones faces is they forget their gameplan once they enter the octagon. Chael is the kind of guy that will walk through Bones' strikes and do his best to drag him to the mat. I think he can take him down, I hope he can hold him down and I really hope Vinny's got his submission defense up to par, I dunno.. For some reason i'm feeling the upset.

That being said, if Chael can't get Bones down then he loses in a bad way.
