Pretty interesting fight. You don't get to see it much but Chael is EXCELLENT at regaining or establishing top position on the ground. If Jones takes Chael down I bet he ends up swept, then we can see how Jones responds to being on bottom. I bet he turtles/holds on.


That's not saying Chael will win. Just that I fully expect to see Jones on his back losing at some point during this fight.

This is Jon Bones Jones Chael is fighting, out of Jackson's MMA, the LHW champ. Not that other guy you're thinking of, whoever he is.

Jones will win. I think Sonnen MAY get 1 takedown early but after that its all Jones. In fact, I think it would be play out exactly like Silva/Sonnen 2 but with less time on the ground and a vicious beating standing by Jones. Jones wins via submission.

Does Sonnen actually deserve this opportunity at the LHW Title? No he does not. But can you really blame him for taking what was offered to him? No you cant. It is not his fault that the higher ups like Sonnen and gave him this. Blame the people that give Chael this. This match might be a waste of time, but at least Sonnen will go down fighting even though he admits that this is a much more worse match for him than the last.

Jones when ever and how ever he wants to win this fight. Such a mismatch but just have a feeling Chael will eat something trying to close the range and get knocked out. Excited for this fight just to see Chael get wrecked.

I think Jones is going to put a serious beating on Chael. I just can't see Chael out wrestling Jones, hes to big and strong. I expect Jones to either keep the fight standing or get on top of Chael or maybe even a little of both either way I see Jones devastating Chael with some brutal strikes, busting him up and finishing the fight.

I've wanted to see Jones lose the belt for some time, probably won't happen but hopefully Chael makes it atleast out of the first round. Logically I see Chael just getting steamrolled and incrementally picked apart until he breaks physically, the fight fan in me hopes Chael comes out and does what Randy did to big Timmy or what Cain did to Junior by shocking everyone.

The only reason this fight is interesting is you know what Chael is gonna do. I expected Rashad to try and wrestle and was disappointed when he didn't. Expect a fight cause Chael is a gamer and a true expert in one discipline.
