I doubt we will see the biggest upset in MMA History so the winner of this fight is pretty clear to me.

I just hope that after this, the fad of giving guys Title Shots coming off losses is over. Fights are fights, but this trend stained MMA credibility a bit.

I really want JJ to lose this fight, but sadly I don't think Chael is the man for the task.

One thing that really sticks out in the fight that no one else has done in the past:

Everyone (challenger) has veered from their gameplan. Chael is a one track mind at takedowns and ground control/smothering.

He will get JJ down, the question is.. will he survive an onslaught from Jones with those nasty elbows?

Jones is very tall and lanky for the LHW division, and is excellent in using his length and strength. Their is a reason why people start abandoning their gameplans when they are getting punched and kicked from halfway across the screen a la Dhalsim. We all know what Sonnen is going to do, but Jones faced opponents who had the same idea but couldnt do it. What can Chael do than say Rashad could not do? I can only see this ending badly for Sonnen. Once he realized he cant take Jon down and his only method of winning is out the window, he is going to panic and perhaps throw a spinning back fist again.

Chael doesn't have knockout power or submissions, can't envision him winning. The only guys who could beat JBJ are heavyweights.

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.
JBJ has never been taken down! I've never seen either one of them fight from their back so it'll be interesting.

Chael won't stand there and look at him like Rashad and Rampage, he's also more aggressive than Machida.

Chael could make this interesting.

...Yup. I'm pretty much on board with the majority. This fight won't even be close folks unless Jon gets completely out of character and loses his composure. It hasn't happened yet and this phenom has run right through all the top dogs at 205. Very doubtful Chael will take Jon into deep water as well. Bones will make a brutal statement in this fight. I think the biggest question may be can Sonnen take Jones down? Even if he gets lucky and does, Jon will reverse him. Once Bones gets on top, Sonnen is a dead duck. The elbows are a commin' and Chael will get cut and smashed to a ref stoppage...

P.S. I hope Chael is a fan of Jones elbow pasta!...

Its not about what Rashad couldn't do but more so what he didn't even try to do. Rashad didn't really try and wrestle at all he just kept playing that hand tapping elbow eating game plan. It was like he was trying to implement a game plan of getting Jones to break an elbow on his head.

I'm excited for this fight and is cheering for chael. However Jon Jones will dominate him quite easily. The best thing about this fight is to see where Chael goes from here. I don't see how he wins this fight, Jones is better at almost everything.
