I'm sorry, but I don't know what you have to do to beat JBJ standing, but Sonnen isn't going to be the one to do it.

(I reserve the right to delete this should Sonnen actually outstrike Jones.)
If he's going to be attacking with elbows to the head strategy would dictate going to the body repeatedly because if that's your go to move, attack with elbows, the body is going to be open for punishment. It's the best counter I can think of because trying to punch upwards means you're gonna have to look up and in effect open ones self up to elbows. But keeping the head down and attacking one spot in the stomach over and over would be my strategy, I'm not saying I'm smart or I know jack shit, I just really like talking fight strategies. Get close, anticipate an elbow, get low head down and counter with a body punch or two, repeat until he stops trying to elbow all the time.

Until the guy catches on to what you are doing and sets you up for a knockout uppercut.

I still don't see how mounting Silva makes him a strong enough submission artist (that feels wrong saying when discussing Sonnen lol) to sub Jones, from anywhere. It's not like Silva was in any trouble or desperately defending. He was as comfortable being mounted as he was being in full guard.

Sonnen may be able to sub the Stann's of MMA. If Sonnen subs Jones, you can have my avy/sig for 1 month(within forum rules, obviously) and 50,000,000 credits.

that's fighting, there's almost always a counter. But I'd wager that Jones isn't nearly as good at uppercuts as he is elbows, so take the lesser of evils. And it's not like that's not trainable, if you're fighting with that head down mike Tyson style everyone knows to train for uppercuts

IT's good that chael has found a way to make money with his mouth, but I don't see how on earth he will be able to beat Jones.

Honestly, I don't give Chael much of a chance, but he's won me over as a fan (going back a little ways) because, for all his talk & antics, the dude damn well brings it & gives 'er to the best of his ability, and he doesn't scared of anything. I can't find any real fault with that.

Chael's aim should be to not die in the cage tomorrow...and that's about it.

Even though I'm a bigger fan of Jones, I wouldn't mind if Sonnen won just because of the fact that I find it so unlikely. I honestly don't see how he is going to win this fight. Jones has never been taken down in the UFC and he's a lot bigger than Sonnen. Jones usually has a rather easy time with wrestlers, and I don't think Sonnen's higher pedigree than Jones' opponents will make much of a difference.

Still, if Sonnen won, I'd laugh. I wouldn't mind at all like I said. It would just be funny to me.
