Good win for the champ. Stoppage might have been a little early, but Sonnen seemed okay with it. He seemed to hint at retirement as well.

Crazy how Jones out wrestled him so easily. Size was a factor in this fight.
This fight only?
The man dwarfs all his opponents...

It was quite obvious during the interview that Jones didn't even realize he was injured. One of the wonders of adrenaline.

This drives me insane. It's a legitimate strategy to just cover up when someone is throwing wild, ineffective blows. They could easily tire themselves out, and in the first round of a title fight that could be huge.


And in this case, Chael would have won via doctor's stoppage.

Sonnen got beat up. Best case scenario he was gifted a win via injury and gets mauled in his next fight at 205.

It is a total outrage that the title wasn't awarded to a fighter who was getting destroyed because of a freak injury he did nothing to cause.

Good thing Big Nog is pretty much retired now because he could never be successful with these refs nowadays.
Big Nog's nick name over here is the Brazilian Balboa for that reason. True story.

Would have been fine if it was a No Contest.


Also, there was not much time left in the round. Its not like Jones was going to pound on him for 3 minutes. Chael was in perfect position to block the shots and ride out the round. I seriously can't believe people are proud of this stoppage for Jones
