Big Foot Silva over Cain Velasquez.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

No he isn't. Chael isn't a top 25 LHW and it will show quickly in this fight. It's a gimmick, it's not a competitive matchup.

How's that work? Because I'm pretty sure Jones can just Maia Sonnen in a head and arm choke in less than 3 minutes

To be fair, outside of Bonnar and Vitor for five seconds, who has really proven to be 'competitive' against Jones?

Vera, Shogun, Bader, Machida, Jackson, Vladmir, Hammill, and Evans all got outclassed badly. Even if he does lose, I'll bet Sonnen looks better than all of them.

Fair enough, but Chael would get beat badly by everyone Jones has fought for the title so far.

They said the same thing about Anderson/Chael 1.

'Oh har har, Phail Sonnen gonna get wrecked'

'Anderson by matrix'

'Anderson by just looking at him'

Chael ended up breaking his ribs and beating him down until Anderson had to resort to the coward's refugee when Chael didn't know the rules. Then in the rematch he pulled the grease n grab against him.

Chael Sonnen will walk into that octagon and he'll knock that drunk sadist on his sorry ass and then order Jones' old lady to make him a steak....

MEDIUM RARE.

That is if Jones doesn't hit another tree before he has to face the People's Champ.

We'll agree to disagree. I think Sonnen would maul Shogun and Vitor with his wrestling, and at this stage, he'd beat sluggish Evans and over-the-hill Rampage. I do agree that he'd have some 'figuring out' to do with Machida, but he'd probably just employ the same game plan a soft and lazy Rampage did and control Lyoto against the cage.

Come to think of it, I'd be confident choosing Sonnen over ALL of Jones' previous opponents.
