Jiu-jitsu coach: Sonnen will submit Jones off his back

by Aaron Tru | source: Aaron Tru

"After watching Jon's last fight, I could just tell Chael to pull guard and he's likely to submit Jones. I don't know, I'm not going to disrespect the guy. He has an excellent overall game, incredible athlete. He's super young so he can get better in everything else. But his ground in his last fight was a little suspect. He got caught in an armbar by a guy who is not known for having great jiu-jitsu for MMA, even though Vitor's a black belt, he's not known for having great jiu-jitsu for MMA. And especially getting somebody in the submission off his back, it made things even more unbelievable.

Me judging as a technician, as an expert in jiu-jitsu, I don't think Jones has the kind of ground to handle a guy with incredible guard. I think I'm going to work on that with Chael, just work on his guard, pull guard and Chael will submit him off his back."

He said the same about the last fight with Anderson. But hell stranger things have happened.

Imagine Bones getting DQ'd from illegal 12-6 elbows a la Matt Hamill and Chael getting the belt.   Would that blow your fucking mind or what?   He takes an illegal knee from Anderson like a boss, but gets the strap for a righteous DQ his very next fight because of 12-6 elbows.   Word.   Zuffa, make it happen.

I don't remember actually making that observation, but I think it's because his post is easy to read in Chael's promotion voice and adding to this troll seems like something he would do lol but you may be right as well. ;D

Jon Jones has been training BJJ at Gracie Barra Albuquerque with 4x World No Gi Champion Roberto "Tussa" Alencar since his last fight. I'm sure he'll be ready for Sonnen's submission game.

This guy needs to shut up with that, how many times has he said Chael will submit so and so already? It's not going to happen.
