Because he didn't test positive for elevated levels in those fights. I believe in the system.

The Silva suspension was the result of a lapse in communication and some minor errors in judgment. Chael Sonnen is a good, honest man.

I'm a big Lyoto fan, but honestly I think Chael gives him a harder time than Jones. Chael is a Relentless beast.

Machida will back away from both the entire fight. Jones destroys him. Sonnen get some points but wins a decision from Machidia backing up the whole time.

I can see Sonnen giving Jones major fits. Jones is going to be surprised by the pressure, and I think Chael will come in a little bigger than most people think. Not saying Chael is going to dominate or anything. But I think he's going to surprise people.

That being said, Gustafsson/Mousasi winner deserves the next shot.

I just don't see what Sonnen can do? He can put pressure on him. But he struggled to wrestle Bisping, not that Bisping is a slouch in wrestling. He struggled to get Anderson down in the 2nd round. How is he going to take Jones down? And if he does how will he deal with those legs in guard? When Sonnen tries to clinch he is going to eat short elbows from in close.

I just don't see what Sonnen can do. He can force Jones to not be able to fight at distance. But I highly doubt he has success wrestling. Jones could choke him out from any position as well.

I don't think Sonnen is going to win, I just said I think he will do better than most people think. I can see him having success getting inside Jones' considerable reach advantage because he doesn't have much to fear from Jones standing. Sonnen is great at managing distance and getting inside guys. From there I think Sonnen will look to work Jones in the clinch a little bit or start spamming for doubles and singles from close quarters.

My prediction is that Sonnen will give Jones fits for about a round, then Jones will turn things up and either snag a keylock or win by elbow TKO in the second or third.
