Don't get me wrong, I'd be less certain were Sonnen stepping in there with fighters like Glover and Gustaf, but I'm actually very confident that Chael could beat most, if not all the fighters Jones has thus far laid a whooping on.

I'm not going to get ahead of myself, but Sonnen is looking huge at LHW, and I'm looking forward to seeing how strong he is at this weight class. If he can grab ahold of Jones and muscle him down, we may have ourselves an interesting fight. No one has ever put real pressure on Jon before... Sonnen will at least attempt to do so.

Canadian Psycho and TLL will be upset when Chael gets his ass kicked in the first and subbed in the second.

Does Tim Kennedy winning a decision against Roger Gracie count as a major upset? They aren't ranked, but Gracie has enough people hanging off his privates.

That's mostly due to ignorance though. I hope the betting odds reflect this forums opinion.

He's a smaller, slower, less athletic Wrestler. Yup, that give Bones, who's a bigger, stronger, faster, more athletic Wrestler with more weapons, nightmares!!!1

I don't see it either, Chael has to shoot from a million miles away. Jon can eat his lunch before he greco flips him.

That being said, I would love to see Chael get a TD in this fight and put Jones in strange territory, I just don't see it happening.

Upsets? No ideas, Vinny vs Phil is an intriguing match up though...

MEDIUM RARE.
real people eat their steak rare... i'd call chael real.


i'm gonna call Showtime over Aldo.

i would say Werdum/Nog would be an upset..... but i'm still not sure which one winning would be a bigger upset?

Thing is... Sonnen doesn't shoot. Sonnen charges. I am interested.
