I just can't fathom Jones losing this fight. I think it will be one of his easiest defenses. His reach is just so great against a non striker in Sonnen. If Sonnen rushes I just see Jones tossing him to the ground and if Jones gets Sonnen on his back I think that's the end of the fight.

Jones can win this fight when he wants and how he wants. If he wants to TKO Chael he can do that, if he wants to sub Chael he can do that too. He can put him away in the first minute of the fight if he really wants to and I really hope he does. Just to prove how insane this matchup really is.
Chael doesn't have any hope of winning. He can't knock him out, he can't sub him and he isn't good enough to win a decision. Lead pipe lock, doesn't get any more sure then this.

I have zero interest in this fight but I'll buy the card for the real fights.

You are going to be waiting. Because it isn't happening this time around.

At one point Chael was a 10 to 1 underdog. It's a joke and Chael is the punchline.

I have Jones sizing up Sonnen until about the halfway mark of the 2nd round, at that point he'll unleash a flurry of devastating blows and drop Sonnen. Very similar to the way Jones finished Shogun.
