LOL I don't think anyone honestly thinks Chael has any chance to have any kind of success. I just take it as trolling when I see anyone say anything otherwise. If Jones wants to finish this fight in the 1st 30 seconds he realistically could.
I'm still crossing my fingers that Chael gets "cut in training" or something else "pops up" so we don't have this waste of a fight.

I'm seriously pulling for Sonnen for the first time ever. This past season of TUF has moved me from being on the fence about Jon Jones to seriously disliking him. Sure, Chael loves to talk smack and hype the fight, but when interacting with his guys he seemed like a genuine, down to earth guy. All I got from Jones was douchebag... ness. I couldn't stand listening to him talk.

Also, to everyone asking what Chael brings to the table that others haven't, it's this: Chael P Sonnen doesn't give a f**k. He's not concerned with reputation or who you've beaten in the past. All he sees across the cage is a face In need of punching. This is a man who came in swinging against the most dominant striker in the UFC. Do you really think he'll be any more concerned by Jon Jones than he was with Anderson Silva? I certainly don't.

Also, this card is stacked. I'm pumped to see every one of these fights, and Saturday could not come sooner.

Has Jones ever even been taken down in the UFC? Against Rashad, he pulled guard. Against O'brien, he dropped him and then applied a choke. Jones has fought a lot of wrestlers and dominated them and at one point he even complained because he was tired of fighting wrestlers. He wanted a different type of challenge.

Yeah, this is an excellent match up for Jones. Chael may be better than all of the wrestlers Jones has faced, but he's probably smaller than most of them. Jones should absolutely dominate Sonnen and I'd be legitimately surprised if Chael even made this competitive. If he did though, I wouldn't mind at all. If he won, I'd actually laugh and say "well played". I just don't see it happening.

Quoted for ******* truth.
I'm kind of rooting for Chael but this is going to be a massacre. One thing is for certain about Chael though, he has stones.

Machida is as fake a black belt as vitor is, if Chael is getting subbed it's not gonna by a guillotine it's gonna by a triangle/armbar from top position but again jones is not a black belt so I hardly see how he is gonna do that.

Chael has to crowd his head in there to do what he wants. He is a head down and charge typeof fighter. I pick Bones by some sort of choke. Bones' arms are too long to mess with that much, doesn't matter his belt level. Chael's style seems like it would lead him right into an anaconda or guillotine.

That choke had nothing to do with any type of elite submission skills. The fight was pretty much over after the big elbow on the ground, Machida's will was gone at that point. He ends up getting hurt, then getting choked out. Anyone can apply that submission at that point.
