Wanderlei: 'Bones' Can Beat Chael With One Hand

UFC Quick Quote: Jon Jones will ‘swallow’ Chael Sonnen, can win with one hand tied behind his back

By Adam Guillen Jr. on Jan 12, 1:30p 51
Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE

Wanderlei Silva picks Jon Jones to retain his belt against Chael Sonnen when the two meet at UFC 159: "Jones vs. Sonnen" in Newark, N.J., on April 29, 2013. On top of that, "The Axe Murderer" advised "Bones" that he can defeat Sonnen by simply utilizing a jab while having his other hand tied behind his back.

Quote:
"Whatever the boss [UFC President Dana White] says, I sign underneath. If he thinks this fight is fair, then I think he's absolutely right. It was a fight I wanted to see; [but] Jones will swallow Sonnen. I spoke with Jones and told him that he can win the fight only with jabs, with one hand tied behind his back. The only person who can beat Jones today is Anderson [Silva]."
-- Wanderlei Silva gave his thoughts to Sherdog about the upcoming Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight title fight between current division champion Jon Jones as he attempts to defend his title for the fifth time against Chael Sonnen on April 27, 2013 in Newark. And, to no surprise, seeing as how Silva and Sonnen aren't exactly the best of friends, "The Axe Murderer" is picking Jones to ‘swallow' "The American Gangster" when the two meet in New Jersey. In fact, Silva says during a conversation with Jones , he boosted "Bones'" confidence level by telling him he can defeat the trash-talking Sonnen using only one hand to jab while the other is tied behind his back. Furthermore, the former PRIDE FC champion says he spoke to the 25-year-old about a potential fight against UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, but wouldn't reveal just what Jones had to say. For what it's worth, he proclaims his countrymen to be the only man with the skills to defeat the 205-pound king. Interesting, considering Silva himself just made the move back up to light heavyweight division and will take on Brian Stann at UFC on Fuel TV 8 on March 2, 2013 in Saitama, Japan at the famed Saitama Super Arena where Silva enjoyed most of his success during his glory days as PRIDE's poster boy.

I don't see anything ridiculous about what Wanderlei said. Jones can beat Sonnen while using only a fraction of his talent... AND Anderson Silva is probably one of the few people who could really challenge Jon Jones.

So Mr. UFC_OWNNS... why so mad bro???

Crabby, maybe. Loyal to his countrymen, definitely.

When I saw that Wandy made that comment, my first thought certainly wasn't 'that's outrageous.' It was more along the lines of, 'I feel like he's just saying that out of hate for Sonnen.' Surely there's no denying that Chael is facing an uphill battle, but I have to believe that Wand is a little biased based on Chael's fight selling technique from his middleweight title fight. You know what I mean, the absolute bashing of Brazil that he did. I'd be a little spiteful myself if I was in his situation, that's for sure.

He won't put him away with one hand, but he also won't lose to him - that's damn sure

I imagine this will look a lot like the Rashad fight, lots of shooting from the challenger and defending the shots for the champion. This time around I see him stopping it somewhere in the third or fourth though.

I still think Sonnen is out of his league here (Skilled as he is) Jones is an absolute monster. Jones will keep the distance standing and be very hard for Sonnen to take down.

The second round of the second Silva fight Sonnen had trouble getting Silva down, I think Jones will be a lot harder to take down since he's a better wrestler, a bigger man and will be prepared for it.

Wanderlei is correct. Jones will toy with this idiot of a fighter and put him away whenever he feels like doing so.
